David and Rachel work with the Church Missionary Society of Australia (CMS-A).
David leads CMS-A’s development and training ministry and Rachel is involved in mentoring and equipping new Mission Partners. Crosslinks and CMS-A have had a long informal partnership, working in close fellowship in many situations around the world. David and Rachel are responsible for training around 25 new Mission Partners each year, mainly from Australia and New Zealand. They also help the society's 200 Mission Partners, located in 40 countries around the world, to keep growing and learning in their service of the Lord Jesus.
They have three children: Tom (married to Mia), Sam (married to Melanie) and Jonathan.

We have enjoyed a busy and ministry-filled Australian summer, which is conference season for CMS.
This year I was giving the Bible talks at the conference in Adelaide, exploring the prodigal son, the shrewd manager and the rich man and Lazarus. If you’re interested, you can get the audio here. I also answered questions at an event for potential future mission partners, with over 20 people present. Meanwhile, Rachel was busy at the conference in Melbourne, where she met an encouraging number of young adults who are seriously exploring long-term mission. Rachel is currently having serious conversations with around 15-20 potential enquirers. We are very encouraged to see this interest in mission in Adelaide and Melbourne, and to hear similar stories from around Australia, especially in Sydney which is much the largest of CMS’s branches. Pray that the Lord of the harvest would raise up many more workers to serve him around the world.
