Bi-vocational Missionary in Berlin, Germany
Some may say that I am the least likely candidate for such a place: a foreigner, a medical professional and not your “typical” missionary. Part of me would agree. Then, there is the other part who looks at Jesus, in the midst of the crowd of hungry people, and comes to Him, offering my few loaves and fish.
I go as someone sent with a special skill-set, to work amongst other healthcare workers and the sick. I also go to be part of a church plant community, with the boldness of Jesus’ promise that the world will know that He is the Christ.
Missionary Candidates to Austria
Ross and Shona with baby Eden have just finished study at Sydney Missionary Bible College, and are in the process of partnering with churches and individuals across Australia and New Zealand to see Austria reach for Jesus. They have just moved to Wellington, New Zealand, as they seek to be sent by local churches to Austria in early 2024.
They long for people in Austria to pick back up the long discarded moral compass of religion, and see instead of dead traditions, a living Christ. They aim to be heavily involved in discipling many to deeper faith in Christ in the Vorarlberg region.
