I work collecting prayer points for the monthly WEC Pray. This role is within the Media and Communications team, and so I also do some writing.
Having heard about WEC from the church I grew up in, I signed up as a Partner because I wanted to be involved with mission. WEC provided me with the opportunity to use my degree (English Language & Linguistics) in a role that supports and facilitates WEC missionaries in action.
The values of WEC – faith, holiness, sacrifice, and fellowship – really resonated with me, and I felt they had a vision I wanted to be part of: to bring the gospel to the unreached.
I really love that my role is one where I can work from home, as it suits my lifestyle. As I live far from the WEC Headquarters, it means I can still be part of building the kingdom with WEC while living in Edinburgh.

The most challenging aspect of my role so far has been researching unreached people groups for the prayer letter. I was largely ignorant of which countries did not have access to the Bible in their language, or were classed as unreached.
Encouraging people to pray that more Christians would reach these peoples has challenged my faith – both making me more thankful for my freedom as a Christian, and for living in a country where Christianity is accessible, and inspiring me to pray for these peoples myself.
The values of WEC are really lived out by WEC members
I visited the WEC Headquarters for an orientation day. What surprised me about WEC is how it is not just their roles they take seriously, but that the values of WEC are really lived out by WEC members. Everybody was so welcoming, and to see such an example of unity and fellowship within an inter-denominational group was wonderful.
