About St. Peter's Mission Partners
Following the retirement of David and Heather Sharland in January 2022, ST PETER’S new Mission Partners were selected at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) held in April 2022. It was decided by the APCM to support two missionaries, one who serves with the Church Missionary Society (CMS) and the other who serves with the Interserve Missionary Society.
Helen Kisakye has been serving for the last six years with CMS in Uganda. She uses dance to work with the disabled in Uganda where they face many challenges due to lack of understanding and the lack of role models. She believes that dance is a gift God is using for His glory and finds it an effective way to connect with others and build bridges. In 2017 she founded the SPLASH Dance Company to bring a refreshing visual message of strength and agility to the disabled rather than one of inability.Helen has also developed a Teachers’ Handbook to encourage the use of a wider range of teaching methods to promote learning.
In addition Helen works with CRANE (Children at Risk Action Network) whose aim is to enable children to be safe and fulfil their God-given potential. One of the aspects of this work is to promote higher levels of education for girls because this is a struggle for them to access. CRANE has therefore developed a programme to address this problem.
Wendy and Yong Lim are serving in South East Asia with Interserve agency.
Wendy works at a small hospital on the edge of the capital, whose vision is to share the good news and heal the sick. Wendy is a nurse trainer working with national nurses and building the capacity of nurse leaders, to improve the care given to patients. This work also gives her opportunities to share the good news of Christ.
Yong is using his IT programming skills to support local NGOs and nonprofit businesses with their IT needs. He is also part of the prayer motorcycle ministry which travels to more remote areas where they can spread the gospel and pray with those receptive to the Word.
