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?

Latest Prayer News

Please pray for the members of the future healthcare team on the Indian Ocean Islands as they prepare to begin internships with local hospitals ahead of the formal launch of the team in the autumn. Pray that they will learn how they can best serve in the Islands’ healthcare system, and for more workers to join the team. 

Praise God for the opportunities that workers on the Indian Ocean Islands have had to speak to friends and neighbours about Jesus during Ramadan. Please pray that they will be led by the Holy Spirit as they seek to keep those conversations going. 

AIM team members serving among the Indian Ocean Islands have also contracted Covid-19 and although recovering, a number are still feeling the after effects many weeks later. Pray for full restoration to health and for renewed energy.

Recently Covid-19 has swept through the Islands with devastating effects. The healthcare systems are not able to cope with severe cases and many have died. Pray for God’s mercy on the Islands, for Islanders to cry out to him and be saved.

Several different groups of workers serve on the ground in the Indian Ocean Islands, and others are seeking to be involved from a distance. Please pray for these groups as they seek to work together to bless those living on the Islands and share the gospel with them.

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.
