Edna Gibson

Asia, South Korea

Edna has been working with Serving In Mission since 1999. She is supported by Bingley Baptist Church and is serving in South Korea, at the Missionary Training Institute. Edna says ‘it is a privilege to be a part of the work that God is doing in the lives of Korean Christians, eager to serve God in cross cultural mission.’

The institute is a place not only to hear about the gospel, but also to learn English.  One of Edna’s colleagues describes the Missionary Training Institute as a cooking pot. ‘At first it feels really cosy, but with the lid on and the heat turned up, some of the impurities begin to surface. At that point some would like to jump out, but those who endure the heat, discover this is the very place they find God in new ways, for he is with us and his desire is to do us good.’

Please pray

  • For Edna and her colleagues who have very long teaching days (7:20 – 21:00!) that God would give them the stamina they need and that they would stay healthy physically and spiritually

  • For a growing understanding of the Korean culture and how to help the students prepare for cross-cultural living

  • For the churches in Korea to grow in their understanding of how they can better support missionaries pastorally

  • That Edna may continue to grow in her daily walk with the Lord
