Robyn is keen to use her university language year abroad to serve God and to grow in her faith whilst improving her language skills. She spent September 2018 – February 2019 in Brussels, Belgium and is in Jena, Germany from February – June 2019.
In Jena, Robyn is serving at the church Evangeliumsgemeinde Jena. The church has a strong focus on expository preaching, personal discipleship and evangelism. There is an internationally acclaimed university in Jena and Robyn is involved with the church's student work as well as midweek bible study groups and children’s work.
While in Brussels, Robyn served as a church apprentice at Woluwe Church (alongside mission partners Steve and Dawn Orange and Robbie and Lizzie Bellis). Le Stage 222 apprenticeship programme involves participating in the church student group, helping with mums’ and toddlers’ groups, teaching Sunday school, leading a youth group, reading the Bible one-to-one and studying one day a week at the Belgian Bible Institute – all in French!

‘Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing…’ (Ephesians 1:3)
F’s birthday breakfast with S (H was taking the photo)
My mum reminded me of these verses during a tearful farewell at the airport just over two weeks ago. The entire chapter has really encouraged me since I’ve been here in Jena to keep praising God for his sovereignty and for everything he has done for us in Christ for his glory. Although I currently don’t have heaps to do, I’m so thankful to God for the three girls I live with. They all study social work, two of them are Christian and the other one has been coming to the English bible study, reading the Bible of her own accord and asking lots of questions. These girls have been so welcoming and friendly; it’s been great just spending lots of time with them.
