About my mission

My name is Daphne van Wingerden, 22 years old, a nurse with a passion for medical care and above all for God.

 I knew from an early age that I wanted to become a nurse and work in developing countries. When I graduated high school in 2015, it was not difficult to choose a further education. After four incredible years at the University of Applied Sciences in Rotterdam, I may call myself a Registered Nurse. During my studies I worked in a big hospital in Rotterdam for 2 years and I did a 4 month internship in The Gambia Four months after my graduation, I quit my job, cancelled my rent and donated almost all my belongings that didn't fit in my backpack, to start a new adventure: Medical DTS in Townsville, Australia!

The DTS (Discipleship Training School) allowed me to lay a good foundation for further career in the mission field during 3 months of teaching phase and 2 months of outreach in Papua New Guinea. As I became more or less stuck in Australia due to the COVID-19 situation, I decided to attend a 3-month Bible school in Townsville. I then worked for 2 months as a Mission Builder at the base in Newcastle.

It is wonderful to experience God's calling for your life and it is an absolute privilege to be able to walk it out!
