Nick and Harriet moved to The Gambia in June 2018 to be involved with a small bible school - Servants of the Word (SOW).
Evangelical Christians make up less than 1% of the population of The Gambia and most Christian leaders have had no formal bible training. SOW was established in 2012 to train local gospel workers in preaching and bible-teaching ministries. However, more theologically educated teachers are needed to deliver the course and disciple the students.
Nick is teaching at SOW, as well as helping with the work of GAMFES (Gambian Fellowship of Evangelical Students) and the ministry of local churches. As well as caring for their two young children (Phoebe and Arthur), Harriet is using her experience as an English teacher to help those with poor literacy to access the course at SOW.

‘Name above every other name, what can’t you do? What can’t you do Jesus?’
We’ve passed the one year mark in The Gambia and this song we sing at church seems like an apt anthem. We look back on God’s faithfulness and think over all that he’s done that seemed difficult, unlikely or even impossible to us: from providing for our practical needs, to all that he’s been doing at the college, to the huge privilege of seeing those from the majority faith come to Christ. In times when we’ve felt anxious about what lies ahead, it’s been wonderful to remember how he has provided thus far and that we can have confidence he will continue to do so. Thank you so much for your prayers, we see them being answered in more ways than it is possible to put in one prayer letter but here’s a taster!
