Gary Brough is a new mission partner in Malawi and will travel there with his wife, Jacqueline, and two young daughters later this year.
Gary will be supporting the work of Livingstonia Synod’s Church and Society Programme as Communications and Resource Mobilisation Manager.
Gary is originally from Kirkcudbright where he came to faith in Jesus as part of the congregation of Kirkcudbright Parish Church. A visiting Church of Scotland summer mission (impact) team played a significant role in that with Gary joining teams in Kirkcudbright, Blairgowrie, Auchterarder and Fort Augustus in the years that followed.
Gary moved to Glasgow to attend Strathclyde University. Being part of the CU there saw Gary’s faith continue to mature. It’s also where he met his wife, Jacqueline, originally from Dunblane.
After a number of years there, attending The Christian Centre, Apostolic church, they moved to Lenzie. They have been members at Kirkintilloch Baptist Church for the last 6 years where Gary is an Elder overseeing the world mission committee and Jacqueline is involved in the worship team where she plays piano.
Around the same time Gary started working at EMMS International as Communications manager - a Christian International healthcare charity working in Malawi, Nepal, India and Zambia. Spending time travelling to visit partners in these countries - including in Livingstonia Synod.
Jacqueline will leave her role as a pensions consultant and together with Gary and their daughters Eilidh (5) and Morven (1), the family are excited about this next stage in God’s plan for them.
