Both George and Debbie Collins were born in Michigan. Debbie was raised as a missionary kid in the country of Bangladesh before meeting George at Cornerstone University. The Collins family first served for 10 years as missionaries in Bangladesh. Since the early 1990s, they have been serving with Global Access Partnerships (GAP), a ministry of ABWE, primarily in restricted-access nations. George consults with many North American churches regarding ways to effectively partner with our brothers and sisters in church planting and leadership training. The couple has three grown sons (Philip, David, and Benjamin). Benjamin serves as a missionary in Bangkok, Thailand.
Way to Pray: George and Debbie are presently in Asia and will be visiting ministry partners and missionaries in Indonesia Thailand, Cambodia, Nepal, and India. They are also in the process of raising funds for their sports GAP's sports ministry complex in northern Thailand. This effective outreach is impacting the lives of Thai young people. Finally, please pray as they plan to host a group of young adults from the States in Asia for a couple weeks to show them what God is doing around the world in hopes that they consider cross-cultural ministry as an option for them.
