Role: Pastoral Care Minister
Background: Diploma of Remedial Massage Therapy; Diploma of Spiritual Direction in the Ignation Tradition (MCD); Healing Prayer Ministry.
Family: Married to Wally for 38 years. We have five adult sons, Sean, Glen, Murray, Terry and Russell. We have five daughters in love, two grandsons and three granddaughters to date.
Passionate about: God, my family, nature, caring for others. Healing Prayer Ministry is my passion. The great joy of witnessing others meet God for themselves. People being restored into freedom, health and wholeness. Helping others into relationship with God, either for the first time, coming back or simply deepening their relationship with Him.
Hobbies: My family, reading, walking, camping, writing and poetry, exploring the country on the back of the motorbike.
I came from difficult atheist family and struggled greatly. At 46 and at the end of my tether, I sank to my knees and prayed to a God I didn’t believe in, praying “God help me, I can’t do this anymore.”
The next day a lady came and said “God sent me, to ask if you would take Jesus as your saviour.” I said yes. God gave me new life. I thought I was nothing and He showed me that I meant everything to Him.
Healing Prayer Ministry brought healing of my heart, body and spirit. I bring this witness and hope as I meet others where they are at. As Jesus met me, and Jesus meets them. My role is helping when I can, simply being prayerfully present when I can’t, depending on Jesus always.
This involves welcoming, listening to, following up, referring to, praying with and connecting people together to care for each other, knowing that we are all the hands, feet and heart for Jesus to love others through.
