Sue is a mother of two adult daughters who grew up in New Zealand and moved to Sydney, Australia in the 1980’s where she and her husband Geoff run a Quantity Surveying business. After Sue became a Christian in the late 1980’s she became involved with a group of ladies who demonstrated to her an understanding of the power of prayer. She moved on from this group with the determination that whatever her circumstances or position, she would make prayer the primary tool for putting down foundations and building into the future. Prior to joining Impact Nations Sue served for many years as Prayer Coordinator in two churches, going on to help establish and work as Prayer Coordinator of Healing Rooms Australia until 2008. Sue’s passion to see miracles, signs and wonders as part of the gospel message in evangelism blends with her belief that prayer requires legs on it. Sue went on her first Journey of Compassion in 2009, to the Philippines, where she experienced the reality of this passion. In 2010 Steve invited Sue to join their first JOC to Haiti in the role of Prayer Leader for that journey. From there was she invited to become the Director of Intercession for Impact Nations. In fulfilling that role Sue has continued to travel with Impact Nations growing in her passion for the Lord and for the work that they do.
