Leanne began serving as a long term missionary in 1997. Along with her husband, and three girls, Leanne served in Mayotte to seek to reach the unreached there with the gospel. Living in the village of Sada, they learned Shimaore and looked to make disciples who will in turn make disciples. They also served in Marseille, working to reach people from the Indian Ocean Islands with the gospel.
In 2017, the family moved to Cardiff, UK. Cardiff, like many cities in the UK, has become a culturally diverse city with much immigration in recent years, particularly from Muslim people groups. Many of these people have emigrated from Africa. The vision for the ministry in Cardiff is as follows:
“To see local believers mobilised to evangelise and disciple the African unreached diaspora of Cardiff.”
The local church is God’s instrument to reach the world for Christ. However, sometimes the local church has difficulty fulfilling its God-given mandate, particularly when it comes to reaching its Muslim neighbours. Leanne seeks to help the local church overcome the barriers that can inhibit ministry to these unreached diaspora peoples.
