He was a discouraged missionary, ready to fly home as a failure. He stood on a central Thailand riverbank complaining to God that the impossible Thai language had ripped the heart out of his evangelistic dreams. Then a riverside encounter with God rescued his future. Presence of God became current experience not just future hope.
It started Dave and Sandra on a journey of growing in the Emmanuel miracle. Now, thirty-five years later, they are more convinced than ever of the importance of an appetite for God-with-us, and that living in response to His presence is the essential core of daily life and ministry.
Their primary ministry arena has been Asia, with some input into Africa and Pacific Rim countries. Their experience has been in church planting, mission leadership and teaching. Over the past decade their ministry focus has been on prayer equipping. Their passion is to teach about living in God’s presence, and to help equip congregations and mission teams for enjoyable prayer that brings pleasure to the Father, transforms the pray-er and makes a difference in nations.
David and Sandra work with WEC International and are currently based in Chiangmai, Thailand.
