Annette*’s interest in global mission was sparked from repeatedly hearing about and seeing global mission in action at her church.
In 2013, she attended AIM’s Into Africa day and since then God has been nurturing her faith and desire to serve him. God has used her short term trips with AIM, different life experiences, and a lot of people to shape and mature her understanding of global mission.
God has now opened up an opportunity for Annette to join a team in East Africa working with an unreached people group living in a predominantly Muslim culture. For a number of years now, the team has been living in and serving their community by engaging in community health projects. Through building relationships, training and coaching, local people are gaining health skills that enable them to care for their communities. The team are members of the local church and partner with fellow believers to share the hope of Jesus.
The focus of Annette’s initial two years with the team will be building relationships, learning and adjusting to the language and culture. She will also engage with the training curriculum set out for the team and will be learning about the community health projects.
