South Africa Gap Year Team

Ella and Iona are spending six months in Johannesburg with mission partners James and Lucy Buchanan at Hope Church. 

Hope Church Auckland Park holds out the good news of the gospel to the diverse communities in the city. Though the church is growing fast, it is in great need of more workers as there is a shortage of church workers who are trained to minister specifically to children, teenagers and young adults.

Ella and Iona are helping with the children’s and youth work at Hope Church alongside the staff team and short-term mission partners Adam Tomalin and Bethany Soper, as well as spending time studying at Johannesburg Bible College (JBC). The girls flew out in January 2019 and will return in June.
