My Life Change

22nd Jan.   1 minute read

Afy came to the UK in 2013, joining WEC UK as a Mobiliser. She tells us what inspires her and how she juggles mission work with family life. 

WEC: How did you become a Christian?

Afy: I was born into a Christian family in Nigeria, but I personally gave my life to Christ when I was 16 years old, during a youth conference. Since then my heart longs for deeper experiences with God – a journey that has brought me this far.

WEC: How did you become part of WEC?

Afy: I heard about WEC when I became a missionary with the Nigerian agency CAPRO in 1994. In 2013, my husband and I were seconded from CAPRO to WEC International in the UK.

WEC: What does your role involve?

Afy: I work with the WEC Network team. My role involves promoting church growth and missions in the UK through prayer and discipleship. And as a wife and mother, I have the task of nurturing my family to follow Christ.

'Missionary work and family building are inseparably linked. I cannot be a missionary without paying close attention to what God is doing in and saying to my family.’

WEC: What motivates you to do this?

Afy: My motivation comes from my love relationship with Jesus. Ever since I became believer, my desire has been to know and serve God.

WEC: How do you combine missionary work with family life?

Afy: Missionary work and family building are inseparably linked. I cannot be a missionary without paying close attention to what God is doing in and saying to my family. My husband and I try to ensure that the whole family understand and actively engage in missionary activities as God leads.

WEC: What's been your most surprising moment in mission?

Afy: The mystery of living by faith never fails to surprise me. Watching and seeing God meeting our needs (including our finances) in a foreign land is amazing.

WEC: Who or what has most influenced your life? 

Afy: My life has been shaped by different people at different times, for different purposes. For example, my seminary teacher Mrs Okunlola influenced my view of biblical womanhood.
