As much as I’ve enjoyed working as a physiotherapist for the past four years, in helping people return to physical function and abilities, I desire more for people to return to our loving Father by hearing and responding to the wonderful good news of Jesus. In doing an apprenticeship for the next two years, I am prayerfully hoping to grow in my love for God, have a taste and be trained in ministry full time, and to work out how best to continue serving Jesus for the rest of my life.

Prayer points

  • Pray that God will grow me in my love and knowledge of Him
  • Pray for growth in my convictions, character and competencies
  • Pray that in all ministries, I would prayerfully depend on God, and serve Him joyfully

Jesus says in the gospel of Matthew that “the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few”.

During my one and a half years in graphic design, I saw the need for the gospel among friends and family. Often, I would feel held back from proclaiming the gospel; and so I chose an apprenticeship as the best next step in being trained and freed up for gospel ministry. I want to consider what a life of serving God will look like for the years to come, and this training and vocation allows me to do so.

Prayer points

  • Please pray for growth in my Character, Conviction and Competency as I seek to be trained up and used for the sake of proclaiming the gospel.
  • Praise and thank God for the joys of serving Him and His people; and please pray that I would proclaim His gospel clearly to all people: believing and unbelieving.
  • Please also pray for my daily spiritual and personal habits; for being deep in God’s word and prayer each day, and fostering healthy rest habits too.

Hello! I want to pursue full time ministry to reach more people with the life-changing news of Jesus. The bible says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23). 

I am convinced that knowing Jesus is the best news ever and I want to use my whole life to tell others about it. I am thankful for MTS as it is a great opportunity to give full time gospel work a go and see if I could keep serving God this way for the rest of my life.


Prayer points

  • That God would grow my love for Him, for His people and for non-believers.
  • That God would build my character and competence as I go through training.
  • That God would help me to persevere and keep pointing others to Jesus for His glory.

Although I have loved working as an ecologist for the past 5 years and enjoy the lifestyle that I currently have, I see a greater need in this world for people to hear the gospel and have Jesus as their Lord. 

Paul writes in Philippians “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labour for me”. I am committed to live for Christ with what time I have, and I see MTS as a fantastic opportunity to try it in a full-time capacity. 

I am also excited at the prospect of being trained and to grow in my knowledge of God, no matter what I do after MTS.


Prayer points

  • Pray that God will give me zeal and eagerness to serve him.
  • Pray that I will trust and depend on God in all ministries I serve in.
  • Pray that God will grow me in love towards Him and His people.

Leaving the world of teaching has been a difficult decision, but one we have made because we long to spend more and more of our time and energy teaching people about the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection. We have been challenged that ‘those who can teach should teach the gospel’ and are convinced that the gospel is the greatest news we can share.

We are excited to spend the next two years serving God with more of our time and energy and to explore how we can best serve God for the rest of our lives.

Prayer points

  • Pray that we would grow in our knowledge and love of God.
  • Pray that we would depend on God in prayer as we serve across various ministries.
  • Pray that God would help us to work well as a married team in ministry.
