Inland Mission


Sent from Portswood Church, Southampton

Heather works to reach unreached peoples in the Indian Ocean Islands with the gospel.

We write about the ‘Indian Ocean Islands’ rather than naming individual Islands because Christianity on ‘the Islands’ is often viewed with hostility and in some cases outlawed by the Islamic rulers. Political violence has left these islands desperately poor and natural resources are in short supply.

Find out more about the Indian Ocean Islands and the opportunities to serve there.

Heather’s platform ministry is working with mother-tongue language resources. Up until now this has mainly been teaching literacy and numeracy to women with little or no formal education. However, Heather is actively involved in hands-on work in a strategy to get more Biblical resources into Island languages in different media forms.

Could you partner with Heather in this work?
