Phil and Cindy recently moved from East Asia to the United States. They are working with two arms of the Navigators: World Missions and International Students at the University of Minnesota.
Their role at World Missions is to coach and mentor, via social media, Christian believers living in East Asia. The Reads hope that regular communications and online Bible studies with a core group of believers will serve to encourage these believers in their faith. Phil and Cindy also plan to take regular trips back to East Asia to visit Christian believers and to hold discipleship workshops.
The Reads work with Navigators International Student Ministry at the University of Minnesota allows them to focus on Asian graduate students and visiting scholars. Their goal is to build and strengthen relationships and reach them for Christ.
The Navigators International Missions advance the gospel overseas, reaching out through missionaries and ministries. From the first Navigator missionary’s journey to China in 1949 to currently more than 1,200 cross-cultural missionaries in 102 countries, Navigators brings the joy of Christ to every corner of the earth.
