Rob & Cindy North
From “Out of Africa” to “the Land Down Under”… From Maasai Mara Safari’s to Outback Trekking across the vast distances that make up the continent of Australia. After nine years serving at Africa Nazarene University in Nairobi, Kenya, Rob and Cindy started a new assignment in Nazarene Missions on 1 JAN 2024 by flying to Brisbane, Australia. Join in prayer for the Norths as they begin a new chapter in their 30-year marriage to serve on the Australia/New Zealand Field and remotely for Asia Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary(APNTS).
For over fifty years the Church of the Nazarene has directly engaged in missions to First Nations people. By far the most significant has included sending Missionaries into the remotest corners of the Australian outback to serve and minister in otherwise forgotten communities. Cindy and Rob will be joining this ministry venture for the Australia/New Zealand Field as-well-as Rob working with Asia Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary as their Director of Development.
PROJECT for DEPUTATION 2024:
In the weeks and months to come Rob and Cindy will be researching the kind of vehicle needed to cross the vast distance that make up the ministry points where this work is taking place. Meeting the people dedicated to this work and asking lots of questions. Then in April through June 2024 they will be on deputation raising resources to purchase the important off-road and off-grid vehicle and caravan (think of a fifth wheel or trailer on steroids) needed to accomplish this work.
