Physical Therapist Obeys Calling to the Middle East

A physiotherapist takes her career to the Arabian Peninsular, treating pain in people’s bodies and pointing them to the one who provides peace to their souls.

"I wanted to go to one of the toughest countries in the world where there’s been no church before, because I wanted to do something really significant for God,” said Theresa*.

She arrived in the region over 20 years ago, when the only way to move to the Arabian Peninsular as a single woman was through her profession. As a physiotherapist, Theresa said becoming a marketplace worker was a natural fit.

As she daily allows God’s Spirit to fill her up, Theresa finds it easy to speak into people’s lives from the overflow of her relationship with Jesus Christ.
