Fion Lau, from Hong Kong, places her yellow handbag on the chair in the OM office in Greece and sits next to it. In the middle of preparing for her return home, she takes a few minutes to share about how God brought her all the way to Greece.

In 2015, Fion served on the OM ship Logos Hope. After one year, she felt called continue in missions, and God placed a love for refugees in her heart. When OM in Hong Kong suggested that she serve with OM in Greece, she felt God speak to her immediately by giving her peace that this was the place He wanted her. After a miraculous visa process, she found herself walking the streets of the ancient city of Athens.

Don´t think you are too small or too ordinary; you can serve Him in extraordinary ways, because it’s not about you, it´s about God.

In her first two weeks in Greece, Fion lived in the safe house Damaris, taking care of women, and their children, who had escaped the sex trade. Later, she worked with the refugees at Omonia Church, teaching and playing with the kids, serving them in any possible way.

She says that the most amazing thing she witnessed during her time in Greece was refugees coming to know the Lord, getting baptised and having their whole lives changed. Another highlight for her was seeing the work of churches in central Greece and spending time with Roma children in Karditsa.

Living for one year in a different culture, trying to learn Greek and struggling with English, was not easy for Fion. But still she felt she was able to do what she was called to do: serve God with everything she has.

Looking back, Fion feels the year went by quickly, but that it was fruitful and blessed. Instead of trying to solve all the challenges herself, she learnt to rely more on God. Through serving others, she also learnt more about her relationship with God and grew in her faith. She felt God´s presence, love, peace, blessing and healing throughout the year, and she encourages others to serve in missions.

“If God has called you into missions, be still before God and pray,” she said. “He will provide everything you need. Don´t think you are too small or too ordinary; you can serve Him in extraordinary ways, because it’s not about you, it´s about God. He will transform your life through serving, and the impact will be lifelong!”
