Taiwan Church News. Occasional Bulletin, V.9, no.1 January 1992, p.15


Michael and Ann Stainton, missionaries with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), have tendered their resignation and both plan on pursuing post-graduate degrees in their native Canada.

Michael  (史邁克) an ordained minister, has worked in Taiwan since 1980 in a variety of positions, mostly among the aboriginal community

Ann, who Michael married while on furlough in 1983, was an operating room nurse at MacKay Memorial hospital’s Taitung branch(馬偕紀念醫院台東分院).

Michael was one of the few remaining PCT missionaries who was fluent in Mandarin and Taiwanese as well as literate in the written Chinese characters. His energetic and creative ministry in Taiwan was aimed at fostering self confidence and self reliance within Taiwan’s aboriginal community. In 1980 he worked with aboriginal youth at the Taipei mountain service center. Two years later he became assistant to the director at wulai(烏來)community development center. When he returned from a study leave in Canada in 1983, he and his wife moved to Taitung(台東) on Taiwan’s east coast where e began work as a staffperson at Huadong Community Development Center.

Michael and Ann Stainton are very special people who have greatly enriched Taiwan with their presence and talents. It is with a sorrowful heart that we in the PCT say goodbye and wish them God’s blessings and grace in their new endeavors.
