Living into Ubuntu

the journey of a cross-cultural Christian worker in South Africa


Hi. My name is Nicole Corlew Curtis. So you want to know a little about me? I think my Twitter profile says it best: Christ-follower, daughter, sister, friend, (new) wife, editor, missionary, writer, book lover, traveler, tennis player (well, I try), history nut, and lover of all things English.

Life is an adventure, and living a Christian life is the adventure of all adventures. For more than ten years, I served in the United States’ Christian publishing industry (I was the associate editor of devozine, The Upper Room’s youth devotional magazine.), and I served  for seven years as a volunteer youth worker. Now I am a cross-cultural Christian worker (missionary) to South Africa, where I work with Growing the Church, as their youth coordinator. My sending church is St. George’s Episcopal Church, and my mission agency is  SAMS (Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders). Although Growing the Church is located in Cape Town, our work supports the entire Province of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.

Being a cross-cultural Christian worker is an adventure; and through this blog, I will share my experiences–the highs and the lows, the joys and the concerns–in a real and honest way. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey with me.
