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.

Greetings from a very hot and humid Gambia!
Despite having our moments of struggling with this transition phase, and frustration at the quality and pace of work at the huts, our overall feeling as we look back is that there is SO much to give thanks for from these last few months (get ready for excessive exclamation marks!!):
Though there is still a bit to do on the huts, the plan is for us to move in on Wednesday 6th. Phoebe has been counting down as if for Christmas (this morning she declared ‘Two more sleeps until Tubakuta! Yay!’) and we all feel very excited that the end of suitcase living is in sight!
