Bethany Soper

Bethany is spending three years serving in Johannesburg, South Africa, helping with the youth and children’s work at Hope Church Auckland Park.

70% of the population of South Africa are under the age of 35, but there is a shortage of church workers who are trained to minister specifically to children, teenagers and young adults. Bethany is helping with the church’s Sunday school, toddlers’ group, after-school club and youth camp, as well as leading bible studies and going into local schools.

Bethany has served in overseas mission with Crosslinks three times before – in Uganda, South Africa and Kenya. On her previous trip to South Africa - in 2013 - Bethany served for 10 months at the Lily of the Valley Children’s Village. During this time, God grew in Bethany a real love for the people and the country of South Africa. Following this, Bethany trained as a Ministry Assistant at St Leonard’s Church in Exeter, where she helped with the children’s and youth work.
