BMS World Mission Link
Beeston Baptist Church is in partnership with Alan and Megan Barker. Alan and Megan joined BMS in 2000. Their initial overseas placement was with United Mission to Nepal (2000-2004) in Kathmandu where Alan worked in management and Megan as an occupational therapist. After a period of leave of absence, they returned to Nepal in 2007 to work with International Nepal Fellowship (INF) in Surkhet. Alan worked in management and donor relations, training local staff as he did so. Megan developed rehabilitation services, expanding the work beyond leprosy to include other disabilities working alongside and training Nepalese therapists.
Alan and Megan have had an extended time in the UK awaiting visas, but are planning to return overseas in the future. In the meantime, they are working to support a number of BMS initiatives from the UK.
