- Religious worker
Hilary grew up in the United Kingdom, the granddaughter of German Jews who fled to England from Hitler's persecution, and the victim of childhood sexual abuse. She studied nursing and midwifery, before deciding to follow her dream to travel. For a year, Hilary backpacked around the world, through Asia to Australia, where she settled with her first husband. Finding herself in an abusive situation similar to that of her childhood, Hilary found help and gained strength from a number of Indigenous pastors. With her second husband Paul, she has built a beautiful Prayer House at Gundaroo, where people can come to rest, pray and relax, and stay for respite. Hilary travels to conferences all over the world to participate in prayer for the nations, as well as in our own Parliament in Canberra.
