Do you want to be a world Christian? Join us as we gather to worship, hear from women in missions and pray for God's purposes among the nations.
In December, we'll hear updates from Global Partner Sonja B. at the Downtown Campus. For the past 13 years, Sonja has served as a missionary in the countries of Sudan and Chad, alongside her husband, Jacob, and their seven children. They presently lead a team of 29 people (10 adults, 19 children), working together to see a church planted amongst the Zaghawa people, an unreached people group residing in Chad. In their village of Iriba, temperatures are above 100 degrees most days of the year and touch 120+ throughout the summer, but then dip down to the 30s in their non-climatized homes for two months during the winter. In most of Chad, there is no electricity or running water so even basic tasks like food preparation, washing dishes, and doing laundry look much different for a wife and mother there than in the U.S. In the villages of Chad, there are no viable education opportunities, so another big part of Sonja’s days involves homeschooling her children. In the midst of keeping their home and educating their children, Sonja also enjoys the numerous opportunities to follow Christ’s call to love those around her by visiting her neighbors, participating in their joys and sorrows, and sharing with them the hope she has found in Christ.
