Mary Chowenhill

Serving In: Uganda
Ministry: Education Ministry

SAMS Role: Missionary

Home Church: St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Jacksonville, FL

Starting Year with SAMS: 2012

Calling to Ministry: Mary has served in ministry most of her life. She served in campus ministry, and then in prisons and schools. After several short term mission trips and work with refugees from South Sudan, Mary began to sense God's call to full-time missions. As a result of much prayer, in early 2012 Mary went to SAMS headquarters and signed on as Missionary Bridger. In December 2012 her journey in full-time missions began. The call of God was not a one-time event, but a daily nudge sending her to serve others. Each day as she prays she asks God for the instructions needed to complete the day's tasks. God has led her to raise up Christian entrepreneurs in the Uganda Christian University Business Department.

Mission and Vision for Ministry: Mary seeks to guide others to understand that our labor here on this earth should always be directed to the glory of God. To that end we must always place the needs of others before our own.

Personal Points of Interest: Mary enjoys Christian music, Bible study, reading, gardening, landscaping, interior design, and cooking. Taught by her parents that God does not waste anything, she is always looking for ways to use the things she has learned over the years to glorify God. Experience with language and bookkeeping assist her as a missionary. Her BA in International Relations helps her navigate the cultural differences. The Bible and an MA in Economics and Entrepreneurship Education guide her in teaching others how to use their resources wisely for God’s Kingdom. Mary marvels at how God is making all things new in her life.

Favorite Bible Verse: Jeremiah 29:11-13
