Organization: Volta a Biblia
Web Site: teledata.mz/voltaabiblia
Willem came to Mozambique as part of a team of 4 people from SA to start Volta a Biblia. Before coming to Mozambique Willem studied theology at the University of Pretoria and was ordained as a pastor in the Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa. In 1999 he met Carol who had been working in Maputo since 1998, and they were married in 2000 – the year of the great floods. Willem is currently working as the principal of the college, with teaching as his main ministry responsibility. Carol handles the administration and finances (being well qualified as a chartered accountant (CPA) for the work!), as well as teaching English classes. The Nels enjoy caring for their animals (dogs, turkeys, geese and chickens). Carol likes to read while Willem plays with HF radios.
