Missionaries

We support a number of Mission Organisations and families as a church. Including those below.

Aitken Family

 

 

 

 

Until May 2008 John and Pearl were working with OMF for 14 years in Bristol, first as regional directors for West of England and South Wales and then as Director of Mobilisation. This involved specific responsibilities in assessing new missionary candidates for service, debriefing missionaries on return from Asia, pastoral care of missionaries, roles in organisational management, teaching on mission, encouraging mission among students and young people, as well as setting up short-term overseas placements and liaising with local churches on missionary matters.

John is currently the   General Director of the newly formed Echoes International.  Echoes  International is a missions service organisation working to facilitate mission and support missionaries from Brethren Churches in UK and Ireland.   You can find more information about Echoes International on their website: www.echoesinternational.org.uk.

 

Pearl assists in the management of Filwood Hope, a Christian advice and drop-in centre, in Knowle West, Bristol. The centre serves the local community and is supported by churches in the area. As part of its function, surgeries are run in the centre by other charities such as Shelter and Debt Advice which can be accessed by local residents.

Ralph Gunn, an elder at BEC, is a volunteer representative for Zambesi Mission. Prior to retirement, Ralph was the Assistant Principal (Academic) at Bell College in Hamilton where part of his responsibility was to oversee the College’s Malawi Project. He became aware of the work of Zambesi Mission and made friends with the then Field Director whilst in Malawi with the College.
When he retired an opportunity arose to join ZM to help promote God’s work in Malawi and Northern Mozambique. Ralph now has the privilege of telling churches and other groups about the mission and its work.

If you would like to hear what God is doing in Malawi please contact Ralph by email at r.gunn@zambesimission.org or visit the Zambesi Mission’s website at www.zambesimission.org
