Mon 1 May 2017 |

Marg has been serving in both Africa and South East Asia for the past 30 years and the work that she has been involved in has been remarkable. Marg began her cross-cultural journey back in 1988 in West Timor before moving onto Zimbabwe for most of the ‘90s and then to South East Asia until 2016.

God is Breaking Through!
Fri 28 Apr 2017 |

Visas, work permits, registrations, malaria, finances and staff shortages are obstacles that the Global Interaction Yawo Team have faced in recent years. They are huge challenges but God is breaking through and communities are being transformed by the love and power of Jesus Christ. Living in towns and villages among the Yawo people in Malawi and Mozambique, the Global Interaction Team can be found interacting with the Yawo in all aspects of life. Whether it be shopping at the local markets, sitting or working in villages, tending maize fields or attending funerals and initiation celebrations, the team is dedicated to learning the local culture and language and building deep relationships with the local people.


Drip by Drip the Jar Fills
Fri 13 Jan 2017 | Global Interaction

In Cambodia, as throughout all Global Interaction teams, Jesus is the centre of who we are and what we do. Jesus is our reason for living among the Khmer people. Also, Jesus is our model for how we go about our lives. Firstly, the team is always seeking to live incarnationally among the Khmer by working incredibly hard to be culturally and linguistically competent. Secondly, team members are always seeking to be the Good News by training themselves in spiritual practices. For example, prayer, hospitality and listening. Next, the team is building authentic relationships with those who do not yet know Jesus. Then, into those relationships the team is always seeking to share the Good News, that is, Jesus, through stories. We invited Catherine to help us see what this looks like for her life in Cambodia.

Five Outback Communities
Mon 12 Sep 2016 | Global Interaction

In early 2009 Bill and Pauline drove into the Northern Territory excited, afraid and challenged about a change of lifestyle, culture and home. God had clearly directed them to the remote Indigenous communities of Kalkaringi and Lajamanu. They spent the first year building relationships and learning a new way of life. Seven years later they have grown in their relationship with Jesus and have been constantly challenged about how to serve, support and love those around them.
