Ben and Petra

Serving in the Silk Road Area

For a long time Ben and Petra felt a call from God to partner in His work in the world... however, they just weren’t sure where that would be. Through a long journey they came to believe that God was wanting them to serve among the K people of the Silk Road Area.

In 2016 Ben, Petra, Bryce and Lachlan arrived. In their time on the Silk Road they have grown to love the K people. It’s been encouraging for them to see the ways that God is already at work in this place, and their prayer is for the many seeds that have been planted over years to begin to germinate into a vibrant community of followers of Jesus.

Aside from language and culture learning, Ben leads an English program that provides both a valuable service for the local community, as well the opportunity to meet many people. Petra uses her skills as an Occupational Therapist to connect with families who have children with disabilities, demonstrating that God’s love is unconditional and for all.

Ben and Petra’s desire is to live and serve among the K people long-term. However, they cannot do this alone. Please consider financially and prayerfully partnering with them and the ministry in the Silk Road Area.

Through their day-to-day life, Jean-Claude and Joyce are engaging with people wholistically, responding to their spiritual and physical needs.

Jean-Claude and Joyce share a passionate love for God and people and desire to see the Yawo follow Jesus within their cultural context. They are building relationships with their Yawo neighbours and investing in their culture and language learning with a local language nurturer so they can effectively communicate with their Yawo friends.

They are grateful for the prayers and financial support they receive as they actively seek to build meaningful relationships amongst the Yawo and see communities transformed as they follow Jesus in ways that make sense to them.
