In addition to those who serve as Mission Partners or Short-Term volunteers CMS Ireland also works with a number of ‘Mission Associates’.

Mission Associates are not directly sent and supported by CMS Ireland but work closely alongside our partners, sharing our values, vision and priorities.

The Zimmerman Family
Deirdre Zimmerman (nee Lloyd) is a Nutritionist and a former CMSI MIssion Partner and she currently works as an advisor to NCPS, a Nutrition organisation in Nepal. Mark works at Patan Hospital in Kathmandu as Senior Clinician with input into the training of medical personnel. Zachary and Benjamin attend Kathmandu International Study Centre.

Isabelle Prondzynski
Isabelle is a former CMSI Mission Partner who previously worked in Kenya, where she supported the work of the Urban Development Programme (UDP) of All Saints’ Cathedral Nairobi. During her years working for the EU in Brussels, Isabelle continued her link with the UDP and now, having retired, she has moved back to Kenya.

Alison and Paul Guinness
Alison (née Gill) is a former CMSI Mission Partner who has been working with the Church in Burundi since 2009: offering training in trauma-counselling, teaching at a Bible College and, more recently, developing new opportunities to help send Burundian missionaries to work in North Africa. During her time in Burundi, Alison met Paul Guinness, a missionary with OM (Operation Mobilisation) and they were married in England in 2015. Baby Jeremy joined the family a year later. The Guinness’s returned for a new term of service in Burundi in early 2017.
