Brother Pat and Mary began their foreign field service as single adults. Pat was initially appointed to BWM while still single in October 1985. The Lord brought Pat and Mary’s lives together on the island of Guam, where they were married in 1986. Together they were appointed to serve as missionary church planters in October 1987. They departed for Singapore in January 1989, where they planted a church and raised a family of eight children over nearly 18 years. Subsequently, the Lord led them to Taiwan for 3 ½ wonderful years of service. Throughout all their years in Asia, the Delaneys travelled and ministered in a variety of locations. Brother Pat and Mary want to use their years of experience to encourage and edify their missionary brethren throughout Asia and Australasia.
In Brother Pat’s words:“I am deeply grateful for my former field administrators. They not only influenced me theologically, but they also walked beside me during the challenging days of life and ministry. Because of their investment in me, I desire to invest my life in our existing and future missionaries, in order that they might succeed in their church planting endeavors.”
