We created this blog to give you a glimpse into our everyday life, a ‘behind the scenes’ view of life on the mission field. We have an incredible support team across the globe and hope this is an easy way for you to feel involved and connected with our lives.
Some of what we share will be personal thoughts and revelations, some will be stories and others will be photo updates.
All of it is with the heart of doing life well with you.
Joe and I met in 2008 and we eventually fell in love and got married.
Joe joined Overland Missions (OM) in 2007, we met a year later and it was “like a lot but we both have different stuff going on” at first sight. Joe stayed in Zambia while I went home to England, planning on finishing my studies and joining OM. 2010 I became a full time missionary (with OM) and began to fundraise. May 2011 Joe called me for my birthday and we’ve been talking ever since.
23rd February, 2013 we said I do… 11th April, 2013 we moved to Zambia… 19th January, 2018 Oliver Emanuel made us a family of 3… 28th October, 2019 Cooper Ian arrived and made us a tribe of 4.
We manage the logistics of Overland Missions’ Africa HQ, Rapid 14. Rapid 14 is an important part of Overland’s work across Africa. It is our largest logistical base and from here we send out multiple recon trips, launch long term teams and train up future missionaries. We serve as part of a support system to a large, multi national team working across the globe.
We’re passionate about our work, the people we get to do life with and the places we find ourselves. We hope you enjoy our stories.
Overland Missions is committed to sharing the hope and love of Jesus to the most remote people groups. To find out more or to see how you can be involved please visit our website.
