Kenya is where I was born and brought up. I became a Jesus follower as a teenager due to polio on my right leg . I went to meetings to get physical healing but instead found Jesus Christ as my Saviour and Lord. Two books that had a great impact on my life were "Take my hands" by Dr Mary Varghese and the life story of Pandita Ramabai.
I moved to India when I finished my 'O' Levels at the age of 17 and it is here that I joined Operation Mobilisation (OM) in 1970 when there were very few Indian girls from North India on teams. In 11 years that I served with OM I saw the development of girls teams in various areas of OM.
I have lived in England since 1984 and worked in London Borough of Brent until I had to retire due to throat cancer in 2009. I have worked part time with Asha Charity shop in London from 2010. I am also part of the leadership team at New Life Suwarta Sangat, serving the Gujarati community in Harrow, London.
