Who We Are
Jeff grew up in California and Bethany grew up in New Jersey. After meeting at the University of Delaware, they married and moved to North Carolina where Jeff attended vet school at NCSU. Eventually, the Bracht's settled in Delaware where Jeff practiced at a VCA Veterinary Hospital. Jeff and Bethany have three amazing children and together they seek to live in whole-hearted submission to the Lord. It was the desire to live wholly for the Lord that motivated them to partner with CVM.
Jeff teaches at a veterinary school in Managua; as well as running a monthly surgery day in his house with the help of some veterinary students. Jeff also serves as an elder at their church, International Christian Fellowship. Bethany's impossible-to-describe job is wife-mother-friend. Following two years of attending a Spanish speaking Christian school, their kids (Andrew, Ella and Noah) homeschool full time. Ministry truly is living out your faith...everyday.
While the Brachts are not officially partnered with any national organization or NGO, Jeff has a good standing relationship as a professor at one of the private universities in Managua. The Veterinary School at the University has about 80 students in attendance. The students come from a variety of backgrounds and cities within Nicaragua.
