Welcome to my Gap Year web site!
My name is Helen Greaves. I come from Hartford, Northwich in Cheshire.
I was 19 when I took a gap year with SIM in 2002.
GAP is short for Global Awareness Programme but also acts as an outline for why I have chosen to spend my GAP year serving God. For me I know that this time, as always, should be when God is at the centre, this is An opportunity to learn and grow and is how I will Play my part in World Mission.
Following an orientation and training course from October to Christmas 2001 I arrived in Ethiopia in January 2002 remaining there until the end of June 2002. I worked alongside an SIM missionary couple. For more about what I did on my Gap year read the Prayer Letters, click on the Placement option on the menu and look at the GAP program info on the SIM site.
By the way, my Dad is responsible for most of this site .... so blame him! (He's a star really.)
