Personal Interest Missionaries

With personnel in more than fifty countries, Presbyterian World Mission is literally changing the course of history.  Thousands of lives have been transformed thanks to our mission personnel's faithful and effective work in education, evangelism, health care, community development, and other ministries.  We at FPCGG give thanks for God's presence in the persons of Presbyterian Mission Personnel whom we personally support as our Personal Interest Missionaries.

Esther is vice president for spiritual and community life at Payap University in Chiang Mai, the first Christian university in Thailand.  "This is a time of great social stress and change, and the privilege of helping prepare young leaders for the country is a great responsibility and honor,"  she says.  "Most of our staff and students are not Christian, but we live and work together in an educational institution established in the name of Christ.  We have great opportunities to share God's love daily."  Rob, a retired mission co-worker with more than 50 years of service in Thailand, teaches New Testament at Payap's McGilvary School of Theology.  (Rob and Esther brought the CCI Thai Folk Dancers to perform at FPCGG in 2008 and 2010.)
