Kay

Sent from Hebron Evangelical Church, Aberdeen

Kay leads a medical team in the Indian Ocean Islands.

Kay has had an interest in mission work since childhood. After graduating from university and working for a couple of years as a nurse, she became part of a Training In Ministry Outreach (TIMO) team working in the Indian Ocean Islands in 2011. After the TIMO team finished, she returned to the Islands and worked as a nurse in a small government-run clinic.

During her time on the Islands, Kay learned and experienced how a team can become family through the ups and downs of team life. She learned how to share what she believes in ways that can be understood in the local worldview; and, most importantly, she has learned and seen the power of prayer and the work of the Holy Spirit in changing lives, and that is what she desperately desires for these island people.

She now feels God asking her to take what he has taught her and multiply it by mentoring and leading others to join the work, but also to move to a new area where there is currently little or no witness. So is ​looking to start a new team of healthcare workers to bring God’s invitation and message of healing and salvation to those they will serve. 

Could you partner with Kay in this work?

Ruth works in the Indian Ocean Islands, seeking to share the gospel with people who have never had it explained to them. Please pray for her as she continues to learn the local language and build relationships with those around her. Praise God for the friendships that she has been forming, and please pray that she will be ready to share her hope in Jesus with others. 

 

Please continue to pray for the work of translating the Bible into the language of the Indian Ocean Islands. Pray that those working on it will be able to create a clear and faithful translation. Pray against things that might cause unnecessary delays to the work. 

Kay and Elle have just finished a short internship in a local hospital on the Indian Ocean Islands ahead of starting a new medical team in a new location. Please pray that the experience of local healthcare that they have had will help the team to serve the community well and be a strong witness to them of God’s love. 

Please pray for the Indian Ocean Islands. The effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on supply chains added to local tax increases has meant that the Islands have been experiencing shortages of everyday food items. The cost of living has also increased. Please pray that the Islands will receive the supplies they need. 

Please pray for Dawn in her work of translating resources into the Island language. Please pray that she will be able to spend the time she needs with her fellow translators in order to finish what needs to be finished before her upcoming Home Assignment. 

Indian Ocean Islands

These beautiful tropical islands are 99.9% Muslim and for security reasons we refer to this area as the ‘Indian Ocean Islands’ rather than naming individual islands. Islam is deeply rooted on these islands and to be an islander is to be a Muslim. There are a small number of believers on each island but many follow Jesus secretly for fear of rejection and persecution.
