Missions


At St Aidan’s we support various missionaries and mission organizations. We believe we are called to support the advancement of the Kingdom of God throughout the world by proclaiming the Word in our words and deeds.

From Norm and Audrey Henderson

We are on our second career (at least!), in Angola, Africa working with CEML, a hospital in the southern city of Lubango. Norm provides IT and admin/logistics support and trains others, Audrey applies her community nursing background and mentors CEML’s nurses. Together they run Alpha courses and serve the local church. Along the way we spent most of 2010 in Porto, Portugal to learn Angola’s official language, Portuguese. Our blog title is a favorite saying of Norm’s late mother, who had an all too exciting life as a missionary in Angola in the 1940’s and 1950’s and later in Zambia in the 1960’s.
