Whaley Bridge’s mission family, Jason and Tracy Day and their two little daughters Ruby and Libby, will be flying back to Nepal at the end of February, following a happy six month break here after more than three years in Nepal.
They will spend four months in Nepal, where they were seconded by the Church Mission Society (CMS) to work for United Mission to Nepal. Then, they will move to Chiang Mai in Thailand to take up another mission post. The children, aged six and four, will be able to attend an international school in Thailand.
Last autumn, members of Churches Together in Whaley Bridge, who pray for and financially support Jason and Tracy, heard about their life and work in Nepal, one of the world’s poorest countries. Tracy, a former nurse at Stepping Hill hospital, worked at Tansen Nursing School, which is linked to Tansen Mission Hospital where Jason worked as the expatriate personnel officer.
Ruby and Libby have enjoyed family life in their own home in Whaley Bridge in the last few months, with a taste of English school life at Taxal and Fernilee primary for Ruby.
Whaley’s Churches Together is one of 15 churches supporting Jason and Tracy in Nepal. Jason says this means a lot for the family when they are so far away from home.
