Elle has joined a team on the Indian Ocean Islands, and will in due course hopefully begin medical ministry in a team setting.
When Elle became a Christian at a Gloddaeth camp in rainy north Wales, she was already planning to become a doctor; but God challenged her that while he loves us to serve people practically, the biggest need anyone has is hearing and accepting the gospel.
On her gap year in a Creative Access country, where it isn’t possible to publicly preach the gospel, Elle met Christians using ‘normal’ jobs to build relationships and share the good news. God gave her a heart for the people they were trying to reach: they are so difficult to get the message to, and face so many dangers if they accept it. Elle felt called to this work.
During medical school Elle stayed with an AIM team on an Indian Ocean island and worked in the hospital there. She saw God work in amazing ways: People wanted to talk about God, sought out the Bible, and even had dreams about Jesus. She wanted to go back as soon as possible.
Elle has now returned to the island to join the AIM team there. She will primarily work as a children’s doctor in the hospital and rural clinics, but her intention will be to make friends with staff and patients and share the essential truth of the gospel with them.
Could you partner with Elle in this work?
