Tributes have been paid to retired missionary Joan Cameron who was known for her “tireless and joyful work of ministry” in Scotland and South Africa.

Joan faithfully and joyfully served with her husband, Rev Kenneth W R Cameron, in Prince Edward Island, Coatbridge, Thurso and latterly among the Xhosa people in the eastern cape of South Africa.

The family have been upheld by the hope of the gospel and said of Joan: ‘A faithful servant of the Lord. we are comforted by the certain hope that she is now with her Saviour Jesus Christ.”

Rev David Meredith, Free Church Mission Director, said: “Joan was known for her tireless and joyful work of ministry in many spheres. During her service in South Africa she established the highly successful Inasmuch Fund which raised thousands of pounds for the marginalised in South Africa. It provided funds which built houses, educated students, fed and clothed families, initiated agricultural programmes, paid medical bills and so much more. Her legacy is far-reaching and enduring.”
