Garth and Fiona Kennedy

Fundraising Goal: ZAR 100 000.00
Start Date: January 14, 2015
End Date: January 14, 2020

Brought together by divine scripting, Garth and Fiona, along with their two children, have been in Benin, West Africa for the past eight years.
It was the year after high school. Garth really liked Fiona. There was a "problem" though. During their courtship, God called Garth into full time missions. So with great trepidation, he sat down to write Fiona a letter. At the time she was in Thailand as an exchange student. So, he wrote this monumental letter, confessing his missionary calling and wondering how it would impact this relationship he cherished so dearly. Little did he know, Fiona, sitting in Thailand, was doing the exact same thing! Their letters crossed paths mid-air and a great sigh of joyful relief was expressed on the two continents – Africa and Asia!

Gottfried and Verona Schiele's relationship with TWR began when Verona met Martin Frische, a gentleman seconded to start TWRs German ministry (ERF) in South Africa. Gottfried's first contact with TWR was as a volunteer in the early 1990s.

For three years the Schiele family resided in the USA where Gottfried helped design programme software for the mission.

Verona is currently helping TWR in an outreach area, burning CDs and DVDs for TWR-SA. But she is quick to add that most of her time is focused on being a Godly wife, mother and friend for other TWR missionaries.

In 2009 he resigned to begin this ministry calling, before becoming too old to do a career change.

David grew up in a Pentecostal family, but later opts for a more conservative approach in religion and moved to a Reformed Church. Today the family worship again at a Pentecostal churches. In this way they were exposed to and experienced a wide difference in attitudes and convictions in religion. This is a great advantage to TWR with its inter-denominational work.
