In May 2012, The Church at Brook Hills had the honor of commissioning Jessica from our faith family. Before then, Jessica was living in Birmingham and working as a pharmacist at a local pharmacy. She had been praying and seeking what the Lord was calling her to and had begun to explore that by going on a few Short-Term and Mid-Term trips. She felt led to pursue joining our North Africa Church Planting Team after realizing that her background and education in pharmacy could be an asset to the work that team was doing in North Africa.
Together with the team, Jessica is actively living and working among a very difficult unreached people group in North Africa. There, she is learning language and using her skills at local medical clinics held in the community of their target people group. Jessica is actively sharing the gospel with her friends and God is opening up doors among their people group to hear the gospel.
Ways to Pray:
- Jessica is currently stateside for a few months. Pray for this time to be restful and joyful as she spends time with friends and family. Pray for her time here to be used to share what God is doing in North Africa and fuel the work that is happening there.
- Pray for the women Jessica has shared the gospel with. Pray for repentance and belief in Christ. Pray for God to show them that they are in need of salvation and only Christ is the way.
- Pray for God to provide for Jessica's needs and for Jessica to remain steadfast to what God has called her to. Pray that while she is stateside God will renew her spirit so she can continue the work he has called her to.
