Bethany Soper

Bethany is spending two 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. Bethany loves seeing children and young people grow in their knowledge and love of the Lord Jesus and is looking forward to being able to use these skills and passions for the Lord in South Africa.
