Halsband, Sid & Karen
Sid and Karen are missionaries serving the Lord in the land of Botswana and South Africa. They were commended by the assembly at Shoreacres Bible Chapel located in Burlington, ON Canada. In November 1991 they left Canada with their three sons to serve the Lord in Africa. They started in a village in the northern region of the Botswana called Maun. In 1995 with the help of local believers they became the nucleus of what is known today as Maun Christian Assembly. Maun Christian Assembly is an autonomous Christian assembly that is in fellowship with other like-minded believers in Botswana and elsewhere. In 2011 after serving the Lord for 20 years in Botswana Sid's health required that they relocate to Cape Town South Africa. Sid has been battling the ill effects of TB meningitis which he contracted in their first year of missionary service. Sid and Karen are involved in various outreaches in the community. Their main focus is evangelism and strengthening local assemblies with Bible teaching and gospel preaching. They work closely with other servants of the Lord located in various locations in South Africa and Botswana.
