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.
Jonny introduces SOW, what happens there and why.

‘[The Lord] gives his king victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants for ever.’ 2 Samuel 22:51
There is hope! Jonny preached on this section of 2 Samuel at a partner church recently. There is so much failure, sadness and sin-induced brokenness in the story. But it is so encouraging to hear God’s promises of unfailing commitment to his king. King David’s supreme descendant Jesus is now on God’s throne for ever and, through faith in him, we get to enjoy God’s ‘unfailing kindness’ that he pours out on us in his kingdom! So in the midst of any sadness, failure or sin, may we rest more and more secure and joyful in that unfailing kindness of God. Please pray for our partner church to embrace that, for us to do so ourselves, and why not pray it for yourself too?
