About South Asia
The whole of Asia has developed rapidly over the last two decades, with huge political and economic development, along with rapid church growth.
All kinds of opportunities are opening up as ASEAN develops and Asia continues to change. God is clearly at work and WEC seeks to be in step with him, seeing the nations of South Asia reflecting God’s glory, his kingdom impacting each nation, and disciples of Jesus making more disciples.
WEC’s diverse ministry in South Asia includes missional business, education, English teaching, medical care and development work.
We cannot give details online about the countries, situations and opportunities we have found where you can serve in South Asia, but we will be able to tell you more when you meet us face to face.

What's it like to be a medical missionary?
"Three mornings a week I work at a local hospital. Together with a local nurse we encourage women with newborn babies to breastfeed their infant. We have only a few minutes with each mother yet it is a great opportunity to share God’s love with these young women at a very special, precious and at the same time vulnerable moment of their lives." (a midwife)
"I have loved my time at Sibanor with WEC. I have had the opportunity to learn new skills, develop in confidence as a doctor, and grow in my Christian faith. It has been a huge privilege to be welcomed by the Gambian people and to serve alongside the amazing missionary team here." (Dr Will)
Dr Helen Roseveare, who developed hospitals in the Congo, and overcame incredible challenges, said 'Jesus is worth it'.
