A Call to Humility and Radical Obedience
Don was raised by his widowed mother on a farm in Sussex after his father was ‘killed in action’ in World War II, just before he was born. At 18, he went to Canada to ‘seek his fortune’. This he found when he committed his life to Jesus Christ while at university. He sensed an immediate call to serve Christ in Asia. Don arrived in SE Asia in 1972. For the next 24 years, he served in Malaysia, Taiwan, Cambodia, Thailand and Singapore, studying their languages and working in church planting, teaching & discipling. His award winning ‘Killing Fields, Living Fields’ tells the painful story of the Cambodian church. He is married to Margaret and they have 3 daughters. Don has completed graduate studies in Cambodian at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, and in Theology at Regent College, Vancouver. He recently retired from Dean Close School where he and Margaret have been teaching for the past 15 years.
