Testimonials & Endorsements

What a blessing! We came here to work and are leaving refreshed! Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and friendship\fellowship. We felt so welcomed and loved. God bless you greatly as you continue to seek and serve Him.

S & D Washington State

We were incredibly blessed by our experience at the Haven. Bob, Ann, and Susan welcomed our family of four (two toddlers!) despite the main house not being finished. Their experience on the mission field and in counseling drew out conversations we weren't aware of that our souls needed to have. We left feeling stronger and more prepared for the next season in ministry. We'd highly recommend any missionary or pastoral family in transition, on furlough, or in need of rejuvenation to take out a few days for a visit to The Haven.


A. & K., New York

Thank you for the life and faith you live out each day and for challenging me to step out on faith and know that God is in control! You are dearly loved.

V.O., North Carolina

Thank you for pointing me to Jesus and encouraging me to follow hard after Him. May there be much fruit… and may it remain!

S.W., Mozambique

Thank you so much for this wonderful week. I didn’t know that I needed this time of rest so badly, but now I feel ready and equipped to go. (2013) Thank you for a place to rest ad just be still before God while I adjust back to being in the US again. I’m definitely leaving with a lighter, less-burdened heart than when I came. (2014)

Americans don’t understand how to rest. The Haven succeeds in helping!

M.G., South Carolina

When I am at The Haven, I feel like I’m home with loved ones, family. I sleep deep and sweet in the Lord, laying aside all my burdens and trusting Him. Thank you Ann, Bob, and Susan for all you do for the body of Christ here. Thank you for being a Haven in His Name!

I have been blessed beyond words. Thank you for opening the doors to your home to allow me to rest and be fed by the Holy Spirit. This has been a crucial time for me but because of your hearts, I feel refreshed and restored. May the Lord continue to bless your family and ministry abundantly! Thank you.

F.M., Kenya

I’m thankful to God for this opportunity to come here for a week. It was a very special time for rest. This place is so peaceful! I was enjoying every moment here! I was happy to meet local people here, visit a church and women’s meeting and spend good time with you! I got good rest here! Thank you very much for your hospitality.

Located in the small village of Eure, in northeastern North Carolina, an hour east of Interstate 95, 20 minutes south of the Virginia state line and a couple of minutes off Hwy. 13, The Haven Missionary Care Center serves as an out-of-the-way place of rest. Our property includes nearly 55 acres of farm and woodland that is being developed for the purpose of ministry to missionaries.
