December 1970, Batu, Malang, East Java, Indonesia. A turning time for Marcia and me: would we continue to serve the Lord with the Indonesian Missionary Fellowship as single missionaries or would we serve together?
“O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.” (Psalm 34:3) was the specific word that sealed the matter. And six months later, we answered that profound question “Do you take…” with “I do”!
Forty years down track, we realize that verse was not only a word for marriage but also for ministry. Whatever we did, we did it together, whether in Indonesia, U.S.A. or New Zealand.
Together, we: taught in a Bible School in Southern Sumatra, conducted camps for children and youth, wrote an Indonesian youth manual, ran a business for international students who came to New Zealand for education, co-labored in pastoral ministry in the States and New Zealand. These contextualized our togetherness.
We were a team, called to be “one flesh” in ministry as well as in marriage.
Since returning to the States in 2004, we have ministered as restoration pastors to churches in transition. Our ‘togetherness’ has been a distinctive feature in that ministry. We model ‘team ministry’ as we help church leadership understand where they’ve been, where they presently are and where they need to go.
Thus, we started a watering can…to refresh, revive, and restore. It is the continuation of God’s call to live life and ministry together. Our years in Christian ministry have given us a passion to help others discover the power and presence of God in their lives.
We look forward to connecting with you and hope to encourage you in the journey God has for your life.
Robin and Marcia
