For every front-line combat soldier, there are approximately eight people supporting them. In mission it is no different! We live in Chiang Mai where, as personnel manager, Jason provides administrative and logistical sup-port to Overseas Mission Fellowship (OMF) mission partners across East Asia. Tracy looks after the family, leads a weekly school prayer meeting, a Sunday school team and, as child safety officer, helps OMF mission partners navigate questions around child protection. We have two children, Ruby and Libby, who are both in secondary school.
We are called to share the gospel of Christ and the love and kindness of God in whatever situation we find ourselves.
We are seconded to Overseas Mission Fellowship (OMF): Jason is an area personnel manager, and Tracy is a mum, Sunday school team leader and part-time child safety officer.
More about Jason and Tracy Day
There is a huge need for mission in East Asia. Statistics show that only one in 10 non-Christians in Asia actually know a Christian. Other figures suggest that in East Asia there are 667 million people without the gospel. We’ve been seconded to OMF in Thailand since 2012 to help meet that need. OMF supports mission across the region, particularly in church planting and encouraging church growth with minority ethnic groups across national borders.
We provide support to others who work in cross-cultural contexts, helping them settle and move forward in their lives and ministry. We are passionate in our desire to see lives changed and renewed by the power of Christ as we play our part in God’s mission.
Jason became a Christian at 21. After thinking he would never leave the security of a career in banking, he found himself at Bible college. This was a foundational time and he left with a sense that God was calling him overseas. Tracy became a Christian at 14 and has felt called to mission work ever since. She initially trained with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) and later became a nurse.
Our first experience overseas together was a year in Russia with Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), after which we joined Church Mission Society. We spent eight years in Nepal at Tansen Mission Hospital and Nursing School. Jason was team leader for the foreign medical missionaries and their families and Tracy was a part-time nurse tutor and full-time mum.
