In that period, he served for a time as President of the Christian Medical Association of South Australia.
In Australia’s regional neighbourhood, he played significant roles in the establishment of: the Hong Kong Creation Resources Ministry (and the translation and printing of both into both Chinese scripts), the Singapore Friends of CMI (including several potential speakers), and the Philippines Creation Network.
