We’re the Heffrons, a family from rural New York state following Jesus as missionaries in Cape Town, South Africa.
I (Brian) am a former newspaper reporter and English teacher and serve as a missionary journalist, telling stories about God’s work in and through people and ministries. Tracy is a physician assistant who most recently worked in a hospital’s emergency department; she is explore ways to volunteer her heart and medical skills while also taking care of our family. Our kids, Karen and Billy, are in elementary school and adjusting well to life in Cape Town.
We have been thinking and praying about missions for more than twelve years, and we are overjoyed to be on this journey. We love growing closer to Jesus, learning more about Him, building our faith and trust in Him, and sharing about Him with others. “Missions” – going to strangers (across the ocean or across town), helping them in God’s name, and teaching them about Him – is central to His message and plan, and we are humbly thankful to be involved. God has prepared a path for us in Cape Town, but we seek first to serve Him wherever we are. We are glad for the chances He gives us to do so.
Thank you for stopping by, and may God bless you and all those whom you hold dear.
