REMEMBERING WITH A THANKFUL HEART Jonathon Sturtridge

– a young missionary volunteer who came to serve with the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT) in 1990 from the United Reformed Church (URC), England. As a result of a tragic “hit and run” accident Jonathon died on 31 March 1993 in Pingtung, Taiwan where he was also interred.


This Holy Week received a short but poignant note from Jonathan’s mother Jen Sturtridge.


Jen wrote, “Saturday is the 25th Anniversary of Jonathon's death. Easter greetings to everyone at PCT with grateful thanks for all you have done for us.”


16 December 2017 would have been Jonathon’s fiftieth (50) birthday; his mother and Jonathon's only sibling, Caroline Sturtridge, sent a donation towards scholarships for students at Tainan Theological College and Seminary where Jonathon first served for two years before moving to PCT Pingtung Student Centre. Such a loving gesture enabling Jonathon’s ministry to continue through the lives of others – a fragrant memorial – thank you and God bless you.
