General Meeting


9.30am, Thursday January 18th

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn (Melway 46 F8)

Guest Speaker: Vikki Mustapha; Subject: Women in the Middle East

Vikki Mustapha was born in Australia to migrant parents and grew up as a Muslim. She trained as a secondary school teacher at Monash University and spent several years teaching in the country in Central Victoria before going to the Middle East to work for twenty years. She worked in regular schools there, in centres for the blind and deaf, and then in refugee camps. Whilst there, she built up many relationships with Middle Eastern women – hence the topic of her talk: “Women in the Middle East”. Due to health issues, she returned to Australia, and is presently the pastor of a Christian church in Glen Waverley. She talks to many groups explaining the religion of Islam and talking about women in the Middle East.
