Hi, my name is Louisa and I am a missionary serving in New Zealand. I have been here since 2018 and I am in the mission to know God and make Him known through the works of evangelisation with ICPE Mission, Institute for World Evangelisation New Zealand. We are based at St. Gerard's Monastery, Wellington in a community where we live, pray and work together.

Works within the community:
In the community there are a variety of programs and ministries aimed to build up the people of New Zealand. The main program, called School of Mission, happens yearly with participants coming from all over the world. It aims to form Catholics to be evangelisers and help them grow in their relationships with Jesus.
Other ministries consists of: Young Adults Ministry, Bible Studies, Mother's & Father's prayer groups, and Worship Nights. The community also goes on outreaches around New Zealand to share the joy of the gospel and empower the local community.
If you would like to know more about the works I am doing:
Why I am a missionary:
“Remember that nothing is small in the eyes of God. Do all that you do with love” - St Therese of Lisieux
To love is what we are called to be. To love is our natural tendency. I have found my true love in Jesus! It is Christ's work in my life that has freed me to experience what real love is and to be able to give myself to others generously.
I would love to continue this calling to do the good work that Jesus has started in me and to be able to share this with others. How great would it be if everybody could encounter His true love in times of despair? Or experience the power of true peace in a time full of anxiety and fear?
Purpose of fundraising:
I am here for another year in New Zealand and I am hoping to raise funds for myself to continue the works I am doing. I have previously done multiple fundraiser events. However, I have yet to reach the target I need to continue my journey here.
The purpose of this fundraiser is to fund:
-Board & lodging for 1 year (3600 NZD)
-Travel expenses : Flight ticket back to Malaysia (1000 NZD)
-Other costs : Food/ Living cost/expenses (400 NZD)
For any Malaysians who would like to donate through Malaysian bank transfer, feel free to contact me on: [email protected]
I am sincerely grateful and appreciate your generosity. May He bless you and all your needs.
