Born in Vietnam, Son came with his parents to the USA at the age of seven. He is thoroughly American.  Born in the USA, Stephanie came with her parents to Singaporean the age of eleven.  She is thoroughly Asian. They are an amazing couple uniquely suited for the work here in Singapore.

God has given them three children with distinct personalities who are more comfortable than their parents taking the mass transit. Toby (age 12) and Benji (age 9) took the train and made a bus connection to get home from the mall without their parents.

Son pastors the Victory Baptist Church which was started twenty-five years ago by Stephanie’s parents who are BIMI missionaries now serving in a restricted access country.  Many of the 18 current members of the church remember Stephanie as a preteen and are thankful she and her husband have answered the invitation to come and shepherd this flock.  Prior to the Chau’s arrival ten months ago the church had been through a couple of different pastors and several members got discouraged and left the church.  Son is now casting a vision to reach the community and trying to point the church to a brighter future.  They planned the first ever Easter egg outreach for the end of March and this month they are having a month-long missions emphasis.  In January, they launched The Andrew Project, which is a three-month challenge to the members to make one new friend whom they could bring to a fellowship meal and introduce them to other Christians.  There are several challenges that they face in this historic church but they are trying to make haste slowly for the gospel sake.  Much has been accomplished in their first ten months.  Son is witnessing to a Chinese young man who is close to accepting the Lord.  A young mother found the church and has attended four weeks in a row.  She said it was exactly the type of church she was looking for. Let’s pray that the church catches the burden of the great commission and compassion for the lost.  Please lift this family up in your prayers as they labor for souls in Singapore.

Son, Stephanie, Benji, Tobie, and Mandie Chau
