Thad and Sara Tucker

Preparing to serve in Southern Africa

Sara and Thad with Elianna

Thad and Sara along with their nine year old daughter Elianna are excited to partner with Foundation for Missions in ministry to Southern Africa.

As long time Alaskans they are looking forward to using the skills they have developed in the remote bush in practical ministries to the rural and remote areas of Africa.

For the first year they are planning to work along side Theuns and Karin Engelbrecht, Directors of Foundation for Missions Southern Africa, located in Cape Town, South Africa. Thad and Sara are hoping to learn the cultural and practical skills to be most effective as they wait for God’s guidance to a church ministry of their own.

They desire to learn and implement the Foundation for Farming and Roots for Life ministries. This model has three main areas of emphasis:

  1. Agriculture’ (well-watered gardens) and then expanding to Small Livestock
  2. Health and Nutrition Education
  3. Evangelism and Discipleship

The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is on me; because Jehovah has anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor.

Isaiah 61:1

Please pray for them as they prepare to go and for the partners that will be sending them.
