Dear Shepherd of the Hills

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.



We were delighted to hear the news that you are partnering with us for Mission work in Macau, China.  Thank you for your dedication to our Lord and for your support for mission work.  Your prayers and financial support make it possible for us to do this work.  They also give us much comfort and joy, knowing that you support us in this work.



We have not yet deployed to Macau.  We are still gathering a network of support, but are getting close to deploying to Macau.  We pray that we will be there by this August.




Mahlburg FamilyHere is a little background information:

My wife and I grew up in the Detroit area. We graduated from Central Michigan University and then moved to St. Louis, MO where I studied at the seminary.  My first call was to St. Luke, Clinton Twp. north east of Detroit.  After 6 years, I took a call to Zion, Tawas City on Lake Huron in the northern part of the lower peninsula.  I served there for 14 years until I accepted the call into the foreign mission field.  We have 5 children ages 8 through 16.  We will all be moving to Macau for at least 5 years. 

Macau is small region about 40 miles west of Hong Kong.  It is only 11.6 sq. miles with 636,000 people making it the most densely populated region in the world.  Macau was run by Portugal until 1999 when they turned in back over to China.  The turnover agreement allows Macau to run itself until 2049.  Therefore Macau enjoys a great deal of autonomy and freedom.  They have their own immigration services, passports, visas, etc...  This means that we can enter Macau openly as missionaries.

We have three official ministries in Macau: 1) a special needs school 2) an English as a second language school, and 3) a mission congregation.  We also do some work with the deaf.  I will be a pastor of the mission congregation and help with the other ministries as needed. My main charge is to reach out into the community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  

We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Shepherd of the Hills and hope to visit you. 




Your partners in God's mission, 



The Mahlburg Family
