MISSIONARY PROFILE
JOY GILLESPIE
MINISTRY:
Teaching And Language Work
HOME CHURCH:
Armagh Free Presbyterian Church
ON FIELD SINCE:
1998
PROFILE:
I have been severing the Lord on the mission field since 1998, firstly in Spain for eighteen years and now in Nepal.

From the outset of my labours in Spain I had been involved in colportage work and regularly visited the open air markets in the three largest towns in the area, with a book table of Christian literature. I also gave out tracts in the villages around my home.  As interest was shown in the things of God, we would meet, witness and then invite to the church. 

I was also involved in the work among the children with a weekly Bible club and Sunday school class. I thank God for each child that came under the sound of the gospel during those years.

In spring 2015 I found myself in a very peculiar situation in that I believed that God was leading me to leave Spain and move to the work in Nepal.   On a number of occasions in my quiet time God was challenging me to seek him first above all the comforts of home. On one of those occasions God clearly spoke through the words in Jonah cap 1 v 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city”. I was meditating on the fact that here was a prophet busy in his work for the master but yet God wanted him to move to another area, another country. As a result of God’s leading I was given the opportunity to visit Nepal in Oct 2015. While there, the Lord confirmed his leading and guiding through the words of Isa 30:21 “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”

My work in Nepal will be centred on the teaching of English to children and adults alike. It would be our desire to have weekly classes and a summer program based on the concept of a holiday English club. It would be a time to have slightly more informal classes and through games and songs we could teach the language.

I will also be involved in the work of the Sunday school, youth and among the ladies meetings in the churches. It would be my desire to organise bible stories and pictures for the Sunday schools throughout the denomination in Nepal.  The vast majority of the teachers would not have access to any material to help them prepare for their classes. Pray that God will help us with these plans and ideas. I am going to Nepal with the intent of being an encourager for the people to give help and support where needed.

2 Thes 3:1  Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
