Jinky Pearl Ventura.jpgJinky Pearl Taguiran Ventura is a mission intern with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church, working with the Seth Mokitimi Methodist Theological Seminary in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, an institution of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa.

Mission interns engage in a 25-month international program that includes 20 months in a foreign placement, two-and-a-half months in training and transition (or itineration), and a final two-and-a-half months in a special project or itineration in their home countries. Mission interns integrate faith and justice by learning and working in communities that struggle with injustice and suffering. Jinky Pearl was commissioned in August 2013.

Seth Mokitimi Seminary is the major theological training center for the autonomous Methodist Church of Southern Africa, a mission partner of Global Ministries. Jinky Pearl is involved in the practical ministry program, helping to evaluate field placements and resource materials and also working with visiting volunteer-in-mission groups.

Jinky Pearl is from Davao City in the Philippines, where she is a member of Cathedral—The United Methodist Church. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Davao Doctors College and a Master of Arts in nursing from San Pedro College, Davao City. She has experience in maternal and child nursing, as well as dialysis nursing, and has worked as a health services representative.

She grew up in a Protestant/Roman Catholic family and attended churches of both denominations. Her intimate faith journey with Jesus began when she “finally accepted Christ not only as a Savior but also as my Lord.” She says that God by grace equipped her to be involved in his ministries.

“My call to mission,” says Jinky Pearl, “is born of God’s love and shall prosper for God’s glory. As I walk intimately with God, God caused my heart to have a compassion for people and to step out of my comfort zone. Mission is loving.”
