Mark and Sue Vening
Mark and Sue, members at FBC since 1991, joined Youth With a Mission (YWAM) in 1995 to pursue a fledgling call into missions. More than two decades and four children later, and with the constant support, encouragement and prayers of FBC, they are still going strong!
Mark and Sue originally completed a two year training phase in Central Asia and Mozambique. Since then they have been firmly based in the UK, initially at one of YWAM's larger sites in Hertfordshire and then, in 2002, in Wrexham in North Wales. After learning the language(!), making new friends and joining in with what God was already doing, they have been delighted to see YWAM Cymru/Wales grow and develop over the succeeding years, including the pioneering of several new local and national ministries. They have seen the development of a permanent training facility 'Gair y Gwynt' which now allows the team to run permanent training and ministry all year round.
In correspondence with FBC Mark and Sue have commented:
"Working alongside and with the support of the local church is a fundamental part of what YWAM and the Vening family are engaged with - and one that FBC can justifiably feel proud of. Simply stated, we would not be where we are now without 20+ years of membership at FBC - we are very grateful".
