After living and serving for most of the last 25 years in South-East Asia, 2018 saw my family and I returning to New Zealand. My husband Adam, twins Sophie and Samuel and youngest daughter Tobey and I have enjoyed South Island hospitality as we have been busy re-establishing ourselves in North Canterbury and being welcomed back to Papanui Baptist Church.
My time serving overseas saw me gain extensive experience in community development, working with several local and international NGOs. This experience in turn has grown a passion for seeing people deepen their understanding of God and of who they are in Christ. It has given me a passion to see injustices transformed; seeing God move through his people to bring ‘rightness’ or righteousness into wrong situations.
Being able to journey with people as they move deeper into their own understanding of these things as God reveals His Mission and our place in that mission is very exciting.
