Teams have been traveling with us into Southeast Asia for more that fifteen years. We have always counted this privilege to be a dynamic part of our ministry. Many lives have certainly been changed in the countries where we labored because of this team involvement, but numerous lives of those who accompanied us from the US have been changed as well. More than one pastor has told me personally, "I will never be able to look at anything the same way again." Some who didn't actually travel abroad said of one who did, "He came back a different person."
Several individuals and ministries have continued labors in Southeast Asia after having first traveled with MAPS Global Network. We have likewise had the opportunity to introduce other worthy ministries to nationals with whom they still labor. Some of our greatest memories came as the result of traveling abroad with the brethren.
