Since my first visit to Honduras in 2009 I knew I’d be called to live there at some point. I grew up in Amersham, a small commuter town outside London, was involved in church, enjoyed playing in a band and got my A-levels. A visit to Zambia in 2008 renewed my faith; it was no longer something just for my middle-class home-counties worldview; this was real and for everyone.
When I became a church youth worker, the thought of Honduras never went away. God led me to take groups of young people to Honduras, and to study aspects of my experiences there. I studied young people, communities and practical theology at the Institute for Children, Youth and Mission.
I am excited to learn more as I serve in Honduras, helping to develop projects, communities and individuals and exploring with people who the living God is and how his good news is for everyone.
