FieldPartner is proud to present a presentation and Q&A with Rod and Ruthie Gilbert, long-term cross-cultural workers, authors, entrepreneurs and member care experts. The event will take place on Zoom on 5th March. More details can be found here.
The practical wisdom that Rod and Ruthie Gilbert share has been collected from a lifetime of experiences and adventures in mission and family life over 44 years in Asia and the UK. Rod was the Principal of schools in India and in Sri Lanka and together they have mentored, coached and encouraged hundreds of people in their desire to live well and discover ‘Life in all it’s fullness’ ( John 10:10). They built Scripture Union’s Cornerstone House Family Life Center and Avalanche Adventure center in South India and developed ‘Marriage Masala’ - 52 spices for a healthy marriage. They brought up their 5 children in India and now have 12 lively grandchildren!
Ruthie was brought up in Kenya, has Jewish roots is a trained counsellor and motivational speaker. Together they worked at Bethany Ministries in Hong Kong and they continue to train and teach across Asia. Over the last 7 years, they have established KingsMill in Kent UK a 400-year-old Homestead welcoming people of all nations and stages of life, with the purpose of rediscovering the ‘wide open spaces’ of God’s grace and glory!
We are also delighted that Rod and Ruthie have joined us as partners, we look forward to all this will bring.
