We--Joe and Anna Sawatzky--are North American Mennonites who live in the city of Mthatha, Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. We are raising three young sons--Isaac (5), Moses (3), and Levi (9 months)--and working with African Initiated Churches and New Pentecostals. We arrived in South Africa in January 2006 and are currently in the USA for the purpose of reporting on our work to supporting congregations. We will return to South Africa early next month to begin our second 3-year term with Mennonite Mission Network.
We enjoy the work of communicating our experiences in Africa to a North American audience. We hope this blog can be one point connecting members of Christ's one, global Body.
