Pat Jamison, one of our Mission Partners, gave us many illustrations of how she does this in a loving and joyful way at a well-attended Mission Breakfast in the Rank Room recently. Pat is based in Jobarpar, a rural area of Bangladesh, which is twice the size of Ireland. Jabarpar is 8 hours away from the capital Dacca.
Pat lives in a large compound which includes a school, St Mary’s Church of Bangladesh, a sisterhood of nuns attached to the same church, a Methodist Church and a boys’ and girls’ hostel. Pat outlined in many ways how being part of the community had meant so much to her and been a great support in her work and life.
