THE NEED.

Cape Town is a diverse city with influences from Europe, Asia, and other African countries, making it a melting pot of peoples and cultures.

Its dynamic landscape and diversity of people make Cape Town one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but amidst this beauty, there are countless social issues including poverty, unemployment, crime, HIV/AIDS, and many others. Cape Town is a city that needs hope. It needs hope socially, economically, and – most importantly – spiritually.

BLAKE & MEGAN HUNTER

“God has really given us a sincere love for Cape Town. We have fallen in love with the people, heard their stories, and have seen their need for the Gospel.”
– Blake and Megan
BLAKE.

Blake grew up in a strong Christian home, went to church every week, and attended a Christian school. Both of his grandfathers were pastors, and his mother’s dad, Harlan Cooke, was his pastor. Because of this exposure to Christianity, Blake was able to understand his sin and need for a Savior at a young age, and after school one day, under the direction of his parents, he placed his faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.

Throughout his childhood, Blake heard many missionaries share their stories, and he began to feel God burden his heart for world missions. This was solidified on a Sunday night at the age of eleven when missionary Les Garner spoke at church. He went forward and prayed with Bro. Garner and his grandfather and committed his life to be a missionary. He attended Baptist Bible College, graduating with a degree in Intercultural Studies, and continued to receive a Master of Arts in Church Ministry.

He always felt a great burden for the continent of Africa, and during a trip in college to Cape Town, South Africa, Blake felt the Lord place that city on his heart, and he began praying that God would continue to confirm this direction.

Blake served in his home church (Faith Baptist Church, Madison Heights, VA) in the worship ministry from a very early age and continued into high school when he led the youth group worship team. He also began preaching in the youth group while in high school. While attending BBC, he served on the worship team at High Street Baptist Church, led the chapel band at the college, and traveled with numerous ministry teams. In April 2014, Blake was hired by Faith Baptist Church in Osterville, MA, as Missions Intern. During his time there, he served in many different capacities, including being in charge of worship, youth, volunteers, events, missions, and outreach ministries, finishing his time in September 2016, as the Worship and Youth Pastor.

In September 2016, Blake and Megan were approved as Baptist Bible Fellowship International Career Missionaries to South Africa and immediately began raising financial support to be able to move to South Africa permanently.

On October 5, 2016, Blake and Megan had their first child, Kynlee Rae Hunter.

MEGAN.

Megan grew up in a home that loved the Lord. Her family taught her about God and His love from an early age. Her granddad was a deacon and a Sunday School teacher at their church, and he frequently took the time to invest in Megan, sharing with her the need for Jesus. When Megan was five years old, she asked her mother to show her what it meant to be saved, and Megan asked Jesus to be her Lord and Savior.

In high school, she felt God direct her heart to attend Bible college. She attended Baptist Bible College and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. During her time at BBC, God began to work in her heart for world missions, and she prayed that God would use her in whatever way He desired. Around this time, she met Blake. Because of her love for teaching children, she continued her studies in Elementary Education as well as additional classes in Missions with the plan of using those skills on the mission field.

During a trip to Cape Town, South Africa, she fell in love with the people there. She spent time talking and interacting with people throughout the city, and it was during that trip that she felt God confirm her desire to go to Cape Town as a missionary.

During their time in New England, Megan served in many areas of the church including women, children, youth, volunteers, events, missions, and outreach ministries, as well as teaching school full time.

In September 2016, Blake and Megan were approved as Baptist Bible Fellowship International Career Missionaries to South Africa and immediately began raising financial support to be able to move to South Africa permanently.

On October 5, 2016, Blake and Megan had their first child, Kynlee Rae Hunter.
