Robin & Janet Fenner

South Africa


Robin and Janet are from Brentwood in Essex and their home/sending church is Elim Ingatestone.

The Fenners worked as Elim Missionaries in Nairobi, Kenya for one year and are now based in South Africa at Emmanuel Assemblies.  Emmanuel Assemblies are our longest standing overseas partner, in fact, it was our very first overseas church, planted in 1928 by Hubert Phillips. Those of long standing with Elim will remember the Emmanuel Press and also the missionary couples, the Gulls and Leavesleys, who served for long seasons with Emmanuel Assemblies.

Robin: I committed my life to Christ following a drugs overdose and He set me free from alcohol and drug addiction. Over the last 23 years God has developed my faith and changed me as a person. God’s divine healing has also been evident as he has healed me from two episodes of cancer. Over the last 15 years there have been numerous prophetic words over our lives and I have been very aware of God’s calling into missions.

Janet: I am the daughter of a minister and after much teenage rebellion I made a commitment to the Lord in my last year of school and have served the Lord since then. The Lord has called us to work together in full time service without holding back. Kyla, our 16 year old daughter will be accompanying us. We know we will be living a life totally dependent on our faith in God as we move forward in the work that God has called us to.

Greetings as we approach the end of a rather trying and not so normal year. I hope you have known God’s presence over 2020 in the way that Janet and have done.
The challenges of performing our normal ministry has been challenging – but yet we have sensed an incredible and tangible presence of God amongst the confusions and frustrations we have sensed in our Missionary calling.
It has been awhile since we wrote our news. Though we have had some challenges, we are thankful for the way God has had his hand firmly on us, and we have known His peace and saturating love.
