Our Goals: (Those tangible things we are committed to)
1st year : Learn Siswati, build our house, buy a car, get a dog
2nd & 3rd year: Survey region based on spiritual, mental, physical, emotional, educational, familial, and cultural health; Work relentlessly in areas we see greatest need and Holy Spirit’s direction to serve in. Cultivate our extensive garden; promote creative exchanges of resources among ourselves and neighbors. We live to share the Good News, and to ‘heal the sick and blind’ spiritually and physically as we’re empowered.
Update: Sean aims to empower homestead agriculture with treadle pumps and fuel-efficient stoves. He consults with families and small-scale farmers about their water and garden needs, then fosters long-term relationships of learning and growing and working together.
Nicole volunteers as a labor doula with women in her community. She builds relationships with women through this work, while empowering them with education and emotional support during this life-changing event.
Both Sean and Nicole work extensively in their homestead garden, using the garden as a place of learning from our neighbors, interacting with each other, and sharing our passions- most commonly of God Who Became Man in order to teach us how to live among each other as His children.
