Margot Knight

Sent from Christ Church at All Saints Wandsworth

Margot grew up in South Africa. Although she went to church as a child, it was in late 2009 when she first understood that her sin separated her from God and she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour. Even at this early stage, Margot had a desire for mission work in Africa.  

In 2011 Margot moved to London, UK, and has lived there ever since. During her time in London, Margot’s desire for mission work in Africa grew and, in 2017, doors began opening. A trip to visit mission partners in Rwanda in 2017 confirmed this desire, as well as conversations with other missionaries. 

Margot began contacting mission organisations and commenced Bible studies at the Proclamation Trust in London. In 2019, Margot was sent by her home church, Christ Church at All Saints, to become a staff member at The Bridge. The Bridge church (pictured left) is based on an estate in Battersea and has given Margot the opportunity to evangelise and disciple in a cross-cultural context.  

Over the years, Margot’s desire for mission work began to focus more on unreached people groups in Africa, leading her to reach out to AIM. In 2020 Margot was accepted as a member of AIM, supported by her sending church, Christ Church at All Saints. 

Margot plans to leave for Tanzania in 2021 to become part of a Training In Ministry Outreach (TIMO) team. God willing, she’ll spend two and a half years among the people of Likawage, a 100% Muslim people group who have yet to hear the good news of Jesus.

Please pray for a new Training in Ministry Outreach (TIMO) team in Tanzania. AICT (Africa Inland Church Tanzania) pastors, Musa and Merciana Luzali, will be leading the team and have moved from their current ministry among the Alagwa to Likawage to prepare for the team. Pray for them, and for team members to join them. writes: “Pray that hearts of Christians living among the Rangi would burn within them as Jesus opens wider their perspective of his mission to the nations. Just like Jesus’ interaction with two disciples on a road leading to Emmaus. Telling them, “repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all nations” (Lk 24:47) Pray that they would find ways to reach out to the Rangi living in their neighbourhoods.”

Miriam writes, “I am thankful for the way the gospel of Luke in Alagwaisa is continuing to speak to the disciples. This morning, a friend and I were listening to Luke 14:15-24. As we asked ourselves what we learn about people in this passage, my friend said people’s heads are so hard… (as in resistant to God) and we talked about the importance of giving God the first place in our lives and looking to him above all other things. She affirmed this as she talked about the way even before she gets out of bed, she talks to God and puts everything she has to do in his hands. As we prayed, she confessed that often our heads are hard and also prayed for many hearts to be opened in our community and beyond.” Praise God for how God is speaking to believers through the Alagwaisa translation of Luke’s gospel, and pray that God would open more hearts to him among the Alagwa.
