In this talk, Catherine Pratt and Leeann Stiles share some of the unique challenges that a woman may face on the mission field including fear, loss, suffering, and the heightening of emotions. Along with these, they address the challenge of various life situations including singleness, marriage, and team dynamics.
Catherine Pratt is a North Carolina native. She met her husband, Zane, at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS). She served with Zane in Central Asia for twenty years. A short-term trip to the Muslim world with a student team from GCTS confirmed her prior calling to unreached people groups. Their two children were born in a mission hospital at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Before leaving the States, Catherine worked in outreach family counseling.
