Hi, our names are Sarah and Nathan Cooper. We are based in Sheffield in England, but are preparing to move to South Africa in September '06 to join a church planting team in the Western Cape. We hope that this blog will keep you up to date with our progress as we embark on this new adventure. Watch this space...

Great news!

Thank you for your prayers, we have just heard back that our application for a mortgage here has been accepted, so we should be able to move into a home of our own in a couple of weeks! This is such good news... you may remember that back in June we came over to South Africa to 'spy out the land' and discovered with a bit of a shock that there is virtually no rental market in Worcester, and that the rent would be higher than a repayment on a mortgage! So we started to pray that God would open the way for us to be able to buy something over here. We had no idea how He would provide, but were sure that He would somehow! So to have first the deposit and now the application approved is really great news!
