Jonny has been teaching at Servants of the Word (SOW), a small Bible school in The Gambia, since October 2015. In 2017 Jonny and Beth married and they are now serving together in The Gambia.
Beth is developing a network of youth and children's workers, and finding ways to resource and train them to teach young people God's word faithfully and engagingly. Jonny teaches courses on preaching and discipleship at SOW. They both teach God's word lots at their church too (Beth with the children, Jonny in preaching), where they hope to demonstrate servant-leadership and faithful stewarding of God's precious word.
There is often much admirable zeal and enthusiasm among Christians in The Gambia, but a serious lack of careful and faithful bible teaching. Jonny and Beth are working alongside local Christian leaders; learning from them and assisting them in the task of training servant-hearted gospel workers for the small but growing church.

The Apostle Paul’s letter to his beloved Philippian friends is a model prayer letter, teaching us lots about sharing in gospel partnership (GP).
He wrote with tender affection and deep gratefulness:
‘In the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel… not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only… you sent me aid more than once when I was in need.’ (4:15-16)
That practical and financial sharing was just a part of their joy-filled partnership. The Philippians also ‘shared in [Paul’s] troubles’ (4:14), they shared prayer for each other (1:3) and, most fundamentally of all, Paul thanked God that they ‘shared in God’s grace’ (1:7).
