Steven and Cindy Jobert have been serving overseas for the past 20 years in South and Central America and now in Taiwan. They have 4 children, Caleb and Abby are in college in California and Cody and Eliana are at home with us. We have been serving here for the past several years in training Taiwanese churches in evangelism and discipleship. We have been serving in a local church here for the past couple of years discipling believers to join us in ministry. We are ministering on several university campuses, helping churches start outreach ministries, and mentoring young Taiwanese who are called to ministry.
Update from Jobert Family (October 2021):
We are still on medical leave here in the US. Our daughter is making progress. We are all looking forward to being back on the mission field. We don’t have a time frame yet, but are hoping to be back by the end of the year.
We are excited to see many of those whom we have been discipling step up to ministry in our absence. One of the young men I have been discipling has been called to missions and is preparing his business platform to go to Indonesia. He led two people to Christ last week and has begun discipling them. Another young man who we have been working with has stepped out of his homosexual lifestyle and was baptized this month. It has been a joy for us to continue to receive testimonies from those whom we serve with about what God is doing.
I have had opportunities to do some evangelism training via Zoom to some nationals in Asia. I am also preaching/sharing on missions here in churches. My wife Cindy has been able to stay connected with women she has been discipling to encourage them. We are having to homeschool right now so that has kept her busy as well.
We want to thank AIT for your support both financially and through prayer. This health issue was very unexpected and has been an adjustment for us to be here right now in the US. Our hearts are on the field with our people group, but we are trusting that God has a purpose for us to be here right now and we want to be faithful to whatever His plan is.
