June has been a missionary since 1965,serving as an Australian Baptist Missionary with American Baptists in Hong Kong, where she trained hundreds of Chinese Christians in children’s and youth ministries, evangelism and discipleship.
After leaving Hong Kong in 1984 June
founded Wholeness Through Christ Ministries Australia, through which hundreds have
been equipped to minister Jesus’ healing to emotionally hurt and sick people.
At the same time she pioneered a ministry in China, visiting house churches and taking Hong Kong Christians with her to train house church leaders. Hong Kong Christians still continue this ministry, visiting China twice a year.
In 1995 June was led by God to visit Eastern Europe and here He showed her the need to equip Christians, now freed from behind the Iron Curtain. She established World to Christ International (WTCI), with a qualified Christian Board, to develop a ministry of training Christians in former communist countries in discipleship, evangelism, children’s ministry, Jesus’ Healing of the Whole Person and leadership development for the Church. In 2005 the Lord directed a change in focus nations towards Asia, and we have now sent teams to Nagaland (NE India), India, Cambodia and Hong Kong, with many opportunities opening up in Asian countries. June served as International Field Director for WTCI and oversaw the ministry in each nation.
In 2005, June was led by the Lord to write her autobiography ‘To God be the Glory: Forty Years in Missions Ministry’.
In May 2009, June was diagnosed with blood and bone marrow cancer. During the short period of illness, June was never in despair; she was full of hope and believing for a miracle. Her prayers were filled with thanksgiving for the love and peace of the Lord. Those around her were lifted up by her great faith and devotion to our Lord. On commencement of chemotherapy treatment, June was rushed into hospital for intensive care. June died peacefully surrounded by loving family members and close friends on September 8, 2009. June was 72 years old.
The World To Christ International (WTCI) ministry will continue to build upon the work that June has established in obedience to God’s leading, in Australia, Slovakia and Hong Kong. WTCI is the provider of “Jesus’ Healing of the Whole Person” (JHWP) training course.
