Where we work

Take a look on the 'What we do' page to read about our work in Cambodia and Thailand.

Stepping forward into something different

One of the hardest things to do on a personal level at work is deciding when it’s time and how to navigate a move to ‘the next’ thing.  Accepting that there’s not always a choice, or there may be no requirement or pressure to move on, stagnation, boredom, complacency, disengagement, a lack of drive […]

Trust and Confidence

I was attending an Interserve (Interserve.org.au) weekend retreat last year in Victor Harbor, South Australia, where the principal speaker was long-term missionary, Naomi Reed.

Having spent many years serving in Nepal with her husband Darren and later their three boys, Naomi shares her story with the reader through three engaging biographical accounts. While ‘No Ordinary […]

What it means to be Australian

Today is ANZAC Day.

On April 25 1915, 101 years ago, soldiers landed at Gallipoli; part of a military campaign aimed at capturing Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire, an ally of Germany.

The Easter Effect

In the Weekend Australian this Easter, the newspaper’s China correspondent writes that there are now more than 100 million Christians in China; more than in all of Europe put together and considerably more than the number of people (85 million) in China’s Communist Party. This staggering rise in the number of Christians in recent […]
