In 2007, Warren partnered with Children's HopeChest to oversee the coordination of sponsorship for two carepoints in Swaziland Africa, Ntabamhloshana (Ruby's) and Timbutini. Currently, Ntabamhloshana (Ruby's) has 139 profiled children and Timbutini has 148 profiled children. A child is eligible for profile after four consecutive months of attendance at the carepoints where they participate in the feeding program and Bible study/instruction. No child, regardless of eligibility, is ever turned away from being fed, nutritionally, emotionally and spiritually.
Who manages the mission work on the ground?
There are three full-time missionary couples and ten disciplers that oversee a total of 5000 children and more than 30 carepoints across Swaziland. Currently two teams per year from Warren go to Swaziland on mission. Each trip has a different focus, but we always assist with ministering to the needs of the children, missionaries, disciplers, and the people of Swaziland. This is a hands on ministry, and we develop life long relationships with these wonderful adults and children through our visits and a letter writing ministry.
What can you do to help?

Swaziland…through the eyes of a first-timer I am, by nature, a doer. I have to stay busy and am constantly making to-do lists. I’ve even been known to go back and add completed tasks to my lists, just to have the pleasure of seeing them crossed off. It’s a sickness, I know. When our team…Read More

My heart for this trip was that I would experience Swaziland…Read More

Kelly, Corbin, our friend and AIM missionary Amy McAdams, and myself along with our Shepard who is translating for us; have the opportunity to sit with her at her homestead one evening. She shares with us how…Read More
Swaziland is a society that places so much value on community. Being with one another, relationships, they are of more value than your schedule or your to do list. Community is life. It’s very humbling for this task oriented girl. I woke up this morning and watched the sun come up as I prayed. Lord,…Read More
“Things I’ve Learned in Swazi” : Blog Post By: Elizabeth Schermerhorn Let’s do a little team recap. In the notes on my phone- I’ve been logging the random “Things I Learned in Swazi”. Day One: A) After a roughly 20-hour plane ride, where granola, sour gummy worms, and *interesting* plane food make up that day’s…Read More
“Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation” Mark 16:15. I have read this verse of the Bible for many years and never knew God could be talking to me. Both of my children have served on multiple mission trips for several years but I had never been on one.…Read More
I saw her from across the field as she was slowly walking toward me. She held her head high with quiet confidence and subtle sureness. We walked toward each other like life-long friends. She reached her hand out to shake mine, but you know me, I embraced her as a sister and forever friend. We…Read More
Over the last year, any time I ventured near my fridge several Swazi children, waving to me from a colorful postcard, have greeted me. Their sweet smiles kept me mindful to me to pray for our Warren Baptist team as they traveled to Swaziland this past May-June of 2016. When I placed that little card…Read More
If we were sitting across the table together with a cup of coffee, I’d tell you all about my crazy dream to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. I’d tell you about my time spent in orphanages in Romania and and playing hopscotch with foster kids in South Africa. I’d tell you…Read More
