People all around the world need to hear the Good News of Jesus and have the assurance of spending eternity with Him. Read how God is using His people to achieve this, even in the most remote places.
Kelly is preparing to serve in a least reached community in central Africa that has had little to no opportunity to hear the Gospel. Kelly first felt like God was calling her to serve in cross-cultural ministry during a short-term trip in southern Asia ten years ago. Kelly said, “God used that trip, with all the different experiences and incredible people I met, to fill me with such a deep joy and confidence in God and to cement my desire to be involved in cross-cultural mission.”
Now, she is about to leave to join a multi-skilled SIM team that will partner with a local church in central Africa in outreach to the surrounding area.
Kelly said, “We'll be seeking to build relationships and serve the local community. A number of our team have health-related backgrounds, so we'll work with the local church to see how we might best use these skills in a community health context to share God's love and light with those who don't know Jesus, and whose lives are impacted by poverty and limited health care.”
Although Kelly has been delayed in leaving for the field due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, she has been able to connect with her team during the pandemic. She explained, “It was great to have the opportunity to meet with my team over Zoom regularly throughout last year. Those calls were a highlight of my week and I'm really excited to get to serve alongside such an incredible team of people.”
In this season of building her support team, which she confessed was outside of her comfort zone, Kelly said she has seen God’s faithfulness at work. She said, “It has been so amazing to see God do more than I could've ever asked or imagined in providing my full financial support despite all the restrictions on meetings and travel last year. God has been so faithful in bringing people alongside me to partner with me in various ways.”
