Today, we commissioned Meera Mahadevan as our missionary, through the ministry of Alongsiders International.
With this, BLC has committed to regularly support Meera in her work through financial giving, prayer as well as practically; by checking in with her family (especially her mother) and offering help whenever needed.
Meera has been a member of our BLC Family for many years now. She serves as a greeter and leads small discipleship groups, especially for women. She was previously in the mission field for many years before returning to Malaysia, where she eventually became an experienced corporate coach and journalist.
At her commissioning service, Meera shared how the circumstances that led her to return to Malaysia, her personal struggles, and her longing to return to the mission field during the years she was in Malaysia led her to question what God was up to. Meera shared how God was faithfully at work – all the lessons she learned in the intervening years started to make sense when she received the call to Alongsiders International.
Alongsiders International equips compassionate young Christians in poor nations to walk alongside those who walk alone: to love, welcome and encourage the most vulnerable children and orphans, in their own communities.
Meera will serve as Alongsiders International’s Asia Leadership Coach. She will be based in Kuala Lumpur (an answer to prayer, especially for the sake of her mother) but will travel to support the work throughout the region. From her Alongsiders International profile:
She enjoys walking alongside the leaders from different cultures and challenging them to discover the many new and exciting ways to lead and grow the movement in their countries. In this process, she helps them to realize their potential to lead and fulfill God’s purpose for each of them in Alongsiders. In all of this her passion remains people and building relationships.
