Stephanie is from the United States and came to UTAS on exchange. She was heavily involved with the Uni Fellowship during her time her and has just recently received her first assignment as a missionary to Kenya.
Below is an email she wrote to Crossroads Presbyterian Church, her home church while in Hobart and attached is her missionary prayer letter.
To the church:
Though it's been over three years since I last saw you all, I still look back on my time in Tassie with great affection. So, as I am taking a new step forward in my journey with Christ, I want to share this part of my life with all of you, since you were part of the reason I've decided to become a missionary. II saw during my time at Crossroads people who took risks and stepped out in faith, trusting God to provide and seeing Him work miracles in response. I saw God at work in the lives of His servants, those who teach or sing or cook or just greet people at the door.
I've always felt so blessed that God led me to Crossroads. And because He led me truly on my first overseas expedition, I know He'll do the same now. I have seen God work, and it is truly amazing. As I continue to rely on Him, I hope to share with you His Kingdom work with the Digo people of Kenya. If you would like to hear more about my mission or just about how I've gotten here, I'd love to share with you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from everyone!
