Before we married in 2003, we had both individually made commitments to God to serve Him 'wherever' and 'whenever'. Our desire is for cross-cultural ministries where we can witness for Christ and show his love through relationships and practical aid. After ten years in planning, we finally arrived in Malawi in July 2012.
Here you'll find 'snapshots' of our journey from 'home' to the 'mission field'. You will read our thoughts, fears, and joys as we begin our adventures in Malawi, Africa.
Our first 12 months will be spent in intensive language studies with the aim to be able to speak well by the end of our first year. 'Formal ministries' will commence after getting a grasp of language and culture. Pete will take on the role of SIM Malawi youth coordinator, whilst Jo will primarily be caring for our 3 kids (Teaghan 5, Lucas 3, and Micaiah 1) but hopes to be involved in children's/young women ministries in the future.
