Day 19 – Lily Field

This devotional is part of the Black Missionary Heroes Past and Present Series.

Lily Field (pseudonym)

Medical Missionary and Missions Trainer

Read Genesis 12:2–3

In 2003, after graduating as a Nurse-Midwife and Family Nurse Practitioner, Lily moved to Northern Haiti where she served as a medical missionary in an orphanage for critically ill and abandoned children. She was a mother to seventy orphan kids, and her mission was to make disciples of Jesus Christ that would spread throughout the world with the gospel. She sowed the word of God into the hearts of her children and the Haitian people. After nine incredibly difficult, yet love-filled years mothering, nursing, and ministering in Haiti, God called Lily out to minister to Muslim people. She became the Executive Director of Ambassadors Fellowship Inc. in 2019 and now spends her life raising up and training missionaries of color to raise up disciple-makers in the unreached nations of the world.
