Justina Thomas

From 2016 to present, Justina has been serving as a student missionary among the Palawano people of the Philippines. In December of 2018, while continuing her ministry in the Philippines, she began the transition to career mission servic.

I’m a registered nurse working on the Palawano project in the Philippines. 

As a child my mother read us mission stories. I also had close relatives who were in mission work. After I gave my heart to God at 14, I felt God calling me to be a missionary. At 17 I lived in Guyana, South America for a year helping at a secondary school. This experience was life changing. I knew this is what I wanted to do with my life. I also spent a year in India to learn midwifery. After nursing school I was going to get a job for a year and then see about mission work. My family encouraged me to start talking to mission organizations. So I applied to several. AFM called me the next day, they needed a nurse to go to Palawan to cover the clinic while Carrie was in the States transitioning to Career missionary. This was Wednesday, they needed me at training starting that Sunday. I said ok God and went. 

I really love working with God at the clinic. I have seen amazing answers to prayer. People healed from demon possession, oxygen tanks that ran on empty, people alive that should have died.

I love seeing God work in the lives of people, like the girl who said that she didn’t have to be afraid of the ghosts anymore because now she knows what they really are.

For the future I’m transitioning to being a career missionary with AFM and working full time at the clinic here on the Palawan project.

Frontier Stories

Cave of the Pig

The men hiked over to the village and told the people that what they were doing was wrong. They said the villagers needed to believe in the true God and start feeding their children.

Marmá Friends

Please keep the people of Marmá in your prayers. Pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to work in the lives of the people who live there, that they will continue to be more open to us and the Holy Spirit, and that they will increase in their understanding of Jesus.

Back in the Philippines!

I can’t wait to be home with my people. Praise the Lord for getting me this far. I’m so grateful to know that He will be with me the rest of the way.
