I’m Beth Watkins. I grew up in small-town Delaware, and hold a BA in Religion and Cross Cultural Studies from a Christian University. I have spent over six years in international ministry, working in closed countries in North Africa, South Sudan, and Egypt. I worked (and at times lived) with incredibly vulnerable populations (street children, refugees, and inner-city youth), designing and managing projects for sustainable incomes, organizing job placements for refugees, and overseeing an adult education center that served over 300. In those years I experienced some extreme situations: interrogation, expulsion, and evacuation from war. I am fluent (though rusty) in Sudanese Arabic.
I have spoken in a number of churches and small groups in the US and UK about my overseas work and faith. I am motivated by a strong vision of God’s justice for the poor and His call for Christians to care for their neighbor in every facet of life.
I am currently settling back in the US with my British immigrant husband.
