Ruth is currently in the UK on Study Leave, but before this she worked among the Karimojong in Uganda. Through work within healthcare and the local church, she worked to make Jesus known among this unreached people group. While she studies Ruth assists with Africa Based Orientation (ABO), AIM’s three week training programme for new missionaries held in Kenya.
Ruth left her work amongst the Karimojong in 2017 for health reasons. As God slowly healed the physical and emotional wounds he also guided her to a different area of ministry. In 2019 Ruth began studying for a qualification in counselling. God has given Ruth a vision to, in the future, use counselling to support missionaries to thrive where God has called them.
When Ruth began serving among the Karimojong she thought she would walk down rural roads in Uganda for many years to come. God had other plans and closed the door to serving in Uganda, which was hard to understand. But through serving at ABO Ruth is part of a team who support, encourage and equip many others for service along the African roads God has called each of them to walk.
Could you partner with Ruth in this work?
