There are millions of marginalised and vulnerable children in Africa. A few years ago Susie Howe, the wife of an elder in a Newfrontiers church in London, found herself in Zimbabwe due to her husband having an assignment there with his job.

Professionally Susie had been an HIV/AIDS nurse in one of the large London teaching hospitals and, when approached to help with the needs of orphaned children, she felt that children were not in her area of expertise. But God had other ideas.

In this first part of a conversation I had with Susie she is transparent about her walk with Him and how she launched a very effective initiative, now called The Bethany Children’s Trust, that is helping churches to address the needs in several African nations. She has also helped thousands of children in various ‘hands on’ ways through partner organisations.



Called to Cross-cultural Mission?
Next week I will continue the conversation in which Susie gives some very helpful observations about issues to consider for those who may be preparing to fulfil a call to cross-cultural mission.
