Global Companions Inc. exists to walk alongside movements of majority religion communities, journeying toward a common understanding of our Creator in the Spice region through peace, justice, and freedom.
Sensing God's call as a young girl, Rnd completed Bible school and a year overseas in a student ministry. After serving in a variety of ministries in Canada and completing her master’s program, she returned overseas to sponsor education for children and youth, teach English, learn about community development, and run a livelihood business. This experience led her to a team who partners with Peace Generation programs and Scripture studies.
As Rnd followed opportunities, training, and friendships, the Lord has led her to love people He loves—the marginalized, the poor, immigrants, under-skilled, now her neighbours in the Spice Region, many of whom are of the majority religion.
Although Rnd serves in a country that accepts Christianity, poverty, corruption, and marginalization are still common.
Rnd has been able to work with some women in the country who are promoting peace in their area through a curriculum adapted from the local context called "Peace Generation," promoting values of peace. She and her team have been able to train more than 100 facilitators and teachers in this material so that they can go on to teach high school and college-aged youth.
Rnd has also spent a great deal of time building friendships in her area through learning the new languages and cultures of her majority religion neighbours and finding common interests such as education, business, and crafts.
As an IW, Rnd loves the challenge of rediscovering the Gospel in an ever-changing context. She loves travelling to visit, mentor, and encourage students, workers, and other IWs, as well as playing with children, making friends, and watching God at work.
You can support Rnd through financial support and participating in education events.
