Ian & Jenn Stephens
Ian & Jenn initially came to Swaziland in 2006 and served for a year working at a Neighborhood Care Point (NCP) which served 40 orphaned children, teaching them basic educational subjects, providing a daily meal and showing them despite their circumstances that Jesus does love and care for them.
They returned in 2009 and continued their work at the NCP, but sensing God was preparing them for a change of ministry. In 2010 they began working with CHIPS. Ian and Jenn moved to Vuvulane, an outreach area served by CHIPS, which is both remote and very rural.
Their role in CHIPS has been wide ranging focusing on working directly in the CHIPS communities doing home visits to the sick, organizing donations of food and clothing, ministering to the people through prayer, finding donors to provide school sponsorships, and leading Bible studies.
