So we have just returned from 2 weeks in the US …and we have now been accepted as staff by Servant Partners…hooray!
We have enjoyed a wonderful time visiting Jennie’s family and also had a great visit to San Antonio! Our time there really confirmed that this is the right move for us. We met the the team, got to know the neighbourhood and the city and we have a real sense of peace that this is where God is leading us! We love the ethos of Servant partners and believe this is a great fit for us!
The east side of San Antonio (where we will be moving) is mostly Hispanic. Infact, 95% of the population in this area could be classified as Latino / Hispanic! I guess this is not surprising considering San Antonio is only 3 hours from the Mexico border! Between 40-50% of this population are undocumented migrants from Mexico and Central America! our Spanish will have to improve to integrate fully into this community!
We have included some photos below which will hopefully give you some idea of the neighbourhood we will be moving into!
