Pat and Joy joined the S.I team in South East Asia in early 2019.
Previously Pat worked in the telecommunications industry. He loves coming alongside people and encouraging them in life or whatever they are doing. He is currently undergoing theological studies at Morling College.
Joy has a background in administration which intersected with her heart for mission when she worked at the Global Interaction NSW/ACT State Office. Following theological study, God led her into a pastoral role in the area of community engagement. Joy currently connects with people in their community through English conversation groups, art groups and community events.
Over the years Pat and Joy have been involved in many cross-cultural activities through work and everyday life, as well as participating in a number of Global Xposure trips. This has given them both a love for people of other cultural and faith backgrounds and a passion for serving cross-culturally.
For their first team, Pat and Joy will dedicate most of their time to learning the culture and language of the S.I people, so they may share the Gospel in a way that makes sense to their S.I friends.
