The Australian Association for Mission Studies acknowledges the prior custodianship of Australian land by its indigenous peoples and their central importance to Australia as its first peoples.
As you are probably aware, on Saturday 22/6/13 our friend and colleague Dr Ross Langmead suffered a major heart attack and, after a period in intensive care, life support has been withdrawn. This is a time of great sadness for all who have known and worked with Ross. We are grateful to God for the precious gift of this wonderful man.
Ross was secretary of AAMS for many years We will miss his presence.
