Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — david at 1:14 pm on Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Erin Rigsby is a missionary in Nigeria, Africa. She has been working in Africa for the last 4 years as a nurse in a ministry for street children. These would not necessarily be orphans, though many are. She has had to learn to deal with new illnesses and work around the practices of traditional Nigerian medicine.Erin and Shedrach

Erin and Shedrach

In this interview she talks with us about a couple of short term missions trips to Zimbabwe and China that helped shape the direction God had for her life. She also highly recommended that the listeners read biographies of missionaries. She said of missionary biographies that they “are a very non-threatening way to learn about missions and to learn about different countries in the world.”

She concluded her interview with this bit of advice:

[I would encourage you that] if God has placed in your heart a desire to go overseas or to be a part of a ministry in the states, that you really take the opportunity. It has nothing to do with how you feel, it has to do with obedience and what the Lord is asking of us.

You can read more about Erin at her blog and ministry website.
