Exciting times continue for Global Interaction, including right here in South Australia! Toward the end of last year, yet another South Australian family were accepted as long-term cross-cultural workers, for Malawi: Introducing David and Susie Haydon, and their children Anushka and Kyran.
Part of David’s shaping toward cross-cultural work is the many childhood years he spent in Africa, where his parents were cross-cultural workers. David’s passion for God’s mission – to reveal His love to people using their heart language and culture – continues.
Originally from Sri Lanka, Susie also spent many childhood years in Africa. She has been given the skills to relate to people cross-culturally and is excited about encouraging and empowering people on their faith journey.
The local church that the Haydon’s attend has long been committed to supporting Global Interaction’s work among the Yawo people of Malawi and Mozambique. For David and Susie, to go to the Yawo is a natural extension of this local church’s faithful commitment.
With the largest group of new cross-cultural candidates we have had for quite some time, the Baptist Churches of South Australia now has an exciting opportunity. Through effective partnership with the Haydon’s, and the many others currently preparing to go, our long-standing work in global mission is set to continue.
But our candidates need to get there first! With this in mind, please keep an eye out for our ‘100 People in 100 Days’ partnership campaign which will be rolling out very soon.
All of God’s richest blessings to you all, through it all, in 2018.
