After her adventures around South America at the beginning of this year and more recently in Serbia, both with Operation Mobilisation, Olivia has decided to continue in her 'missionary
service' in a new venture.
Olivia has won a place to serve with an international organisation working for social justice in South Asia starting
in March 2020.
This is a 'voluntary service mission' and Olivia will have to find funding to support herself both getting to her placement and back home again and throughout her
time there - a big committment!
We will keep this website up to date with developments.
Olivia went to Washington U.S.A for a week of orientation and training
in January in preparation for her departure. She made some new friends which included people who would be working with her in the placement and she gained a greater understanding of the work she will be involved in.
This is what she said about her experience:
I have just returned from an orientation week in
Washington DC where I met other interns and learnt more about the organisation's vision and how they operate. I was so impressed by their professionalism and inspired by how they depend on God and seek his guidance. I was also struck that despite the heaviness
of their work they live with such joy. It is a great honour to be joining this incredible team.
Olivia describes what she
will be doing thus:
I will be living in South Asia to work full time in the Government Relations and Advocacy team in one
of their offices. My role on a daily basis will be spent in the office completing projects and assignments. The work of partnering with policy makers to build effective and sustainable criminal justice systems is vital to preventing violent crime.
If you would like to follow Olivia's work and progress, this is how she would like you to support:
Will you partner with me?
I really value your prayers as I prepare to move to a new country and as I settle into my new job. Also please
keep the mission in your prayers as they shine the goodness of Jesus in the darkest places.

|Through giving financially: |
As a non-profit organisation resources are limited and so this internship is unpaid.
I need to raise my travel and living expenses for the year which come to about £12,000. If 5 people gave £50, 15 people gave £30 and 25 people gave £10 per month I would reach my goal. One-off donations are also very welcome –
anything you can give will make such a difference!
