As I labored in evangelism years ago, I felt that I must give myself to international efforts of taking the Gospel to the unreached peoples of humanity and strive to encourage the church in that endeavor. As a result of the many opportunities that followed through the years in partnership with nationals, our ministry became known as MAPS Global Network ... often simply called MAPS - Mobilization And Partnership Strategies.
We have been entering into Southeast Asia since 1998. Since then, we have assisted in the training of thousands, witnessed the salvation of multitudes, partnered in the establishing of churches, labored together with great leaders, and translated materials into multiple languages.
