Tirzah Krey’s elevator speech is an eye-opener.
The missionary's message?
“Come and see!”
“Exploring new cultures and meeting new groups of people can open your eyes to seeing how the Lord works in many different ways,” said Tirzah, who serves the Lord as a missionary through the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.
Tirzah, who serves alongside 40 missionaries in the Latin America and Caribbean region, based in the Dominican Republic, will be sharing her stories and experiences this weekend at Trinity Lutheran. It’s part of our LWML weekend celebration.
“Your whole perspective can change when you see that you have brothers and sisters in Christ all over the world,” Tirzah shared.
Tirzah, who has a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Windsor, provides care for missionaries and their families in all aspects of their physical, spiritual, and emotional health.
“As I've navigated a couple of different hospital and clinic systems while caring for missionaries who are sick, it continues to astound me the different levels of care there are in other parts of the world,” Tirzah shared. “When we think we have "bad" health care here in the States, it's nothing compared to the poor quality of care that is often offered at the best hospitals in some countries.”
There is one constant, though.
“The Lord always provides,” Tirzah shared. “Even though life, church and culture look different, our Lord is the same wherever His people are.”
We just have to open our eyes!
