David & Lucy Morrison

A specific call to disciple vulnerable women has led David and Lucy to service in N'djamena, Chad.

David and Lucy have been accepted on a full-time basis to serve at the Acacia Centre in N’Djamena, the capital city of Chad. Unfair treatment and often oppression of women is sadly the norm in Chad, for many meaning child marriage, abuse, and for some a life of prostitution. The Acacia Centre, a project run by TEAM, seeks to be a place of hope, transformation and renewed lives in the midst of this bleak situation. David and Lucy will be joining the varied work of the centre as well as reaching out to more women through house visits and crisis intervention.

The addition of a male to the team will allow for crucial prevention work, with David hoping to build links with schools and churches to seek opportunities to disciple young men. There is already potential for David to form relationships with the husbands of some of the women and David and Lucy especially look forward to the challenge of modelling ‘godly marriage’ and reaching out to couples together.

Lucy, having grown up in the North East of England, met David when she moved to Belfast Bible College in 2012 to study Theology. A few short months into their relationship they began leading an Exodus discipleship team together. Both already having a heart for mission, it quickly became clear to David and Lucy that if it was God’s will for them to be together, it would be for the purpose of serving God wherever He called them.

The specific call to this work has its beginnings when Lucy, as a young teenager felt God speak to her during an event and tell her that she would work with women in prostitution, a call that she has experienced God deepening since. David had a broader, but firm call to the mission field, particularly to do something that would bring ‘hope’. It excites David and Lucy to see the ways that both of their passions unite in this opportunity in Chad. Together, they hope to bring the Good News of Christ to those in need of healing and hope. 

David and Lucy have spent a year in language and cross-cultural mission training and are preparing to head to Chad in March 2019.
