Hi! My name is Shirley Chee, and I’m from Perth, Western Australia.
Here’s a little background about me. I’m born in Singapore, and moved to Perth 5 years ago. God called me to nursing school in 2007 and I am now practicing as a registered nurse at Joondalup Emergency Department. Nursing is my passion, and I love to read or sing during my free time.
I’m beyond excited to be embarking on an exciting journey with God this year. Sometime in September last year, I had the privilege to be part of a mission trip to Thailand with my church and that was my first encounter with Nightlight. Nightlight is a ministry based in Bangkok which outreaches to women and children who are exploited in the human trafficking and sex industry, empowering them emotionally and offering alternative employment. My mission team was given a tour at Citylight Coffee (one of the alternative employments), and given a huge insight to what Nightlight was doing. It broke my heart to know so many people are suffering with poverty and slavery, and I knew God is breaking my heart for a reason. I have to come back.
I’m thankful of this opportunity by ISM to serve with Nightlight for two months after a period of training in September this year. Being in an unfamiliar mission field is daunting, but I know I won’t be alone. He makes me brave, and I am ready to be used by Him!
