Women on the Mission Field: Erin Pettengill, Witness 2019 (VIDEO)

In our culture and on the mission field around the world, women play a unique and important role in God’s plan for the nations. Statistically more women go on the mission field than men, and 80-85% of singles on the mission field are women. Women face unique challenges on the mission field, particularly in cultures that view women differently, but they also have unique opportunities for ministry that men often do not have.

Veteran missionary and R.N., Erin Pettengill shares from her own experience about serving on the mission field as a woman. Erin has traveled the world working in disaster response in both Sri Lanka and Haiti, and as a medical missionary in Egypt, the Philippines, Honduras, Mexico, and Equatorial Guinea.

Watch and learn from Erin’s insight and personal experience as a missionary woman who has been used of God in service to the nations. Catch up on other Witness sessions you may have missed at mtw.org/witness.
