Hawtrey and Joan Judd

    Here is a brief account of how God has led us and looked after us over the last 60 years. (Received August 2016)

    Joan was at B I in 1954 and 1955.  Hawtrey did his teachers’ diploma at UCT in 1954 and attended B I in 1955.

    Then we left for Nigeria with Sudan United Mission in February 1956, taught in  primary schools for the year, were married at the end of the year and taught at the school where Joan had been the previous year for the next year or two.  For our 16 or so years in Nigeria our main task was in training pastors at Ayu Theological College.  The church in the area is 100 years old this year and plans celebrations in November to which we have been invited.

    On returning to RSA we became involved with the Cape Flats Methodist Mission and Hawtrey worked in the mission offices of Sudan United Mission until all the South African missionaries left Nigeria and then in the Africa Inland Mission office.  After a few years Curly Cuthbert took over the reigns in the AIM office and we left for Namibia where we were for 8 years while Hawtrey taught in the Windhoek Evangelical Bible College and then in the Namibia Evangelical Theological Seminary, and Joan taught in a primary school in Katutura. In 1992 she retired from school teaching, and we both were given the task of running and developing the Scripture Union camp site outside Windhoek and handing over to a national.

    Since retiring from Namibia in  1996 we have cared for grandchildren and now are on a farm near Stanford, Western Cape area growing vegetables.  If ever you are in this area come and look us up!

    Feel free to use what  you can and if you would .like more details please get in touch with us.

    Loving greetings,
    Hawtrey and Joan
