Mark & Sara Williams
Location: South Africa
Hometown: Benson, N.C.
The Williams serve in South Africa, with ARISE ministries, which focuses on planting churches in rural areas. Mark works to provide training, resources and support to local pastors and community leaders. Sara works to address the needs of children in the communities, especially orphans.
“I believe that as Christians we are all called into a life of service, and that wherever you are there is a mission field that needs willing servants,” Sara said. “Mark and I feel that we had a specific calling to a mission field overseas and can see how God has been preparing us throughout our lives for this task. The service to which we have been called both meets our skill set as well as the passion and desires of our heart. Although everyone is called to the mission field, some are called locally while others are called to the ends of the earth.”
