Kirsty 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.
We write about the ‘Indian Ocean Islands’ rather than naming individual Islands because Christianity on ‘the Islands’ is often viewed with hostility and in some cases outlawed by the Islamic rulers. Political violence has left these islands desperately poor and natural resources are in short supply.
During her time on the Islands, Kirsty 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 she preparing to start a new team of healthcare workers to bring God’s invitation and message of healing and salvation to those they will serve.
