Andy and Rachel serve at Proclamation Institute Zambia (PIZ) – a bible school that teaches bible handling skills to Zambian men and women in their own culture and context.
Both Andy and Rachel have had a desire to serve God in an African context for many years. They spent five years in South Africa studying Theology at George Whitefield College and serving in a local church. They then returned to the UK where Andy pastored a small church for five years. In 2019 Andy and Rachel moved to Zambia to begin work at PIZ. Andy teaches several of the courses at PIZ and Rachel is involved with discipleship groups and looking after their two boys, Haydn and Daniel.

Lots of people ask us what life is like out here in Zambia, so we thought this would be a good opportunity for us to share some of our thoughts about our first 18 months here.
Enjoying the bakkie
Daniel: There is a lot of good wildlife that we don’t get to see in England. And our cats!
Haydn: I like that we have pet cats and chickens. It’s also nice that we have lots of space in our garden. I like riding in the back of the bakkie (pick-up) too!
Rachel: I have enjoyed being in a new culture and absorbing all of the new sites, sounds and smells while meeting new people as well. Lots of new things! The sunshine has been lovely too!
Andy: I have enjoyed the teaching – seeing students understand, grow and become more faithful to the texts they are working with. It has been challenging but good to try to understand how Zambians view the world – to better see the questions that are asked about life to then see what questions are being asked when it comes to the Bible. And I have enjoyed designing a garden!
