In January 2017, we began dreaming about a trip where we could sit and listen to the wisdom of followers of Jesus around the world about how God is at work in their context. Twelve months later, with no home or jobs to come back to and an unknown future, we are on our way!
We are (soon-to-be) 30 year olds from Melbourne, Australia, currently traveling for six months visiting incarnational mission movements around the world. We are interested to listen and learn how people living and loving on the margins are:
- staying healthy in their love for Jesus;
- remaining hopeful and joyful;
- strengthening their marriages;
- raising their children;
- maintaining rhythms of rest;
- and many more things!
We also hope to discern what the next steps for our lives might be!
For some time, we have heard Jesus calling us to the margins of our neighbourhoods, countries and world. We want to go humbly and having listened to the wisdom of so many who have gone before us, so that we can be sustainable for the long haul. We pray too that our learnings would bless others who may never get the opportunity to travel like this and bless their neighbourhoods.
Love Ben and Chelsea
