The Gambia Gap Year Team served in Fajara in the west of The Gambia from January to May 2019.
The team included Hannah Brown and Josh Skipworth (team leaders), Amy Carr, Holly Eldridge, Caleb Davies, Alexandra Stanford, Jessica Wood, Tom Ackroyd, George Cook, Tim de la Cour and Lydia Williams. The team taught at schools in the local area, as well as served at a local church and worked alongside GamFES (the Gambian Fellowship of Evangelical Students).
Hello from the Gambia for the final time!
I can't believe we're already at the end of our time here in The Gambia; we fly home on Wednesday. Thank you so much for reading our letters and for praying for us throughout the last five months.
The last couple of weeks have brought our time here to a close. Each of us finished teaching at our respective schools. Most of us were given a great send off and received some lovely gifts, including matching jumpsuits for Lydia and Amy! Unfortunately the staff at Bakau Upper Basic didn't realise it was Jess and George's last day but they will hopefully be going back to school for a proper send off this week. We also had our last devotion at Agape. It's been a blessing to have time dedicated to teaching the children about Jesus. They seem to have remembered the teaching they've received as well as the new song lyrics, which is such an encouragement.
