Missionaries

As a church, we support a number of missionaries who God has placed in various parts of the world. These include:

Susanna Clark - New Hope, Uganda (UFM)

Susanna is a fully trained Physiotherapist who is currently working in the Treasures in Jars of Clay class at New Hope, Uganda. Susanna is a member of Carmarthen Evangelical Church. Susanna works primarily with seriously disabled children to show the love of Christ to them and to give them relief from pain and better freedom of movement through utilising her physiotherapy skills. Furthermore, Susanna also helps with community days and with outreach within the community she lives. Other ministries Susanna is involved in include: physiotherapy, craft, multi-sensory Bible teaching, sourcing and updating equipment, writing care plans and networking with professionals in other spheres and liaising with sponsors.

Becca Jones - Kiwoko Hospital, Uganda (UFM)

Becca grew up attending Carmarthen Evangelical Church before studying and becoming a Paediatrician. Since qualifying, Becca has moved to Uganda and now works in Kiwoko Hospital, specifically working on the NICU special care baby unit. Becca works primarily alongside Ugandan medical staff and is heavily involved in campus life. Her day-to-day schedule involves daily ward rounds in NICU, teaching other doctors, giving support on NICU and training nurses on the NICU ward. She also liaises with sponsors for the Afaano project and supports various children outreach projects in the community. Recently Becca has fostered two Ugandan girls, Erica [5] and Ruthie [1].

Hefin and Janet Jones - Davao City, Philippines (OMF)

Although Hefin and Janet's sending church is based in Sydney, Australia the family are well known to Carmarthen Evangelical Church as Hefin was raised in the area. Hefin and Janet met in Australia whilst Hefin was a pastor. The family now reside in the Philippines where Hefin teaches at Koinonia Theological Seminary (this semester he is focussing on Hebrew and the New Testament). Hefin is also learning Cebuano and is an active participant in church ministry with hopes to continue to develop the ministry in the future. Janet is also learning Cebuano with a view to reaching the urban poor in Davao and getting to grips with Filipino culture. Hefin and Janet have a daughter together, Rhiannon, who attends the International school in Davao.
