Philip and Heather

 

The Passmores have been worshipping the Lord with the St Albans Family since 1987.

Phillip and Heather  met in 1966 whilst studying at what was then the West Australian Institute of Technology (now Curtin University). They registered as Pharmacists in January 1970, married in 1972 and had three children between 1974 and 1978. They owned Community Pharmacy in Como from 1973 to 2007.

The family lived in Thailand from 1980 to 1984 where Phillip worked with World Vision International, managing refugee health care programs. From mid 1984 to 1985 the family lived in Wales where Phillip completed study in health economics. The family then moved to England to study at All Nations Christian College to help them work cross culturally as “tent makers”.

On return to Australia in 1987 Phillip completed a PhD to enable work in numerous public health pharmacy projects in South East Asia. These  included restoration of pharmaceutical services following emergencies, improving quality and supply of drugs in malaria control programs and policy development with WHO to control the spread of counterfeit drugs.

They are now semi-retired but continue to provide support to an orphanage and to oversee an “out of school education enhancement” project in Kupang, West Timor. In 2012, they will assist Perth based theological students to conduct a Mission week with staff and students at the Reformed Theological College in West Timor.

Their adult children Natalie, Jonathon and Fiona are married and by August 2011, Phillip and Heather’s grandchildren will number seven. Later this year, God willing, they hope to complete their walking of the Bibbulmun track.
