Dave and Erin Wilcox

Prayer Letter/Ministry Update


Greetings in our Lord: The education of missionaries' children has been at the heart of our ministry since 1982. Erin and I first served as Missionary Associates at the Alliance Academy from 1982 - 1989. Mary Ann was 14 months old when we first went to Ecuador, and Ian was born there.
In 1989 we transferred to Dalat School in Penang, Malaysia. Erin led the Computer Department there and I was director.
In 1995 we changed to Special Assignment status. I (Dave) have continued serving MK schools and foreign national Christian schools in my role as Assistant Vice President for the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). I help MK schools find teachers and help the schools become and maintain accreditation.
Erin is now the Assistant Vice President of Academic Services for ACSI. She is responsible for the accreditation and the educator certification services of the association. She also assists Christian high schools properly host foreign exchange students.
My work is increasingly with the Christian schools of other nations, not just MKs. C&MA churches around the world have started schools, and I am now linking with them, helping through conferences and organizing national associations.
Mary Ann is now Mary Ann Shepherd, working as a Foreign Service Officer of the USA Department of State. She and her husband Levi, who is also a diplomat, are both assigned to the USA Embassy in Colombia.
Ian is a journeyman union electrician, living in Colorado Springs. he attended Trinity Western University in B.C., Canada.

Prayer Requests/Answers to Prayer

Pray that C&MA churches around the world would see the discipleship/church growth possibilities through Christian schools. Children around the world need Godly teachers that will equip them to see the world and all of life from a Biblical perspective.
Pray that these schools reach the surrounding communities with the gospel and maintain their spriritual mission.
Pray for C&MA MKs, that they might see God at work in their own lives and through the testimonies of their parents - and remain true to Him.
Pray for Dave as he travels a third of each year all over Asia and Latin America. Travel takes its toll physically and means extra work to keep our marriage strong.
