The Gambia Gap Year Team is serving in Fajara in the west of Gambia from January to May.
The team is led by Ed and Sarah Tulloch and includes Bobby Barnardo, Chad Usher, Dan Evans, Tom Clarke, Sophia Chitty, Grace Gregory, Eleanor Sansbury and Lucy Williams. The team are working alongside GamFES - the Gambian Fellowship of Evangelical Students. They are getting involved in student campus ministries as well as teaching in local schools. They are also serving at a local church and studying the Bible in weekly seminars.

It seems like a very long time since the last prayer letter. So much has happened in the past two weeks here in The Gambia, though we recognise that we have been shielded from so many events that have been taking place in the UK.
Breakfast at Boboi
Shortly after the last prayer letter, in recognition of the halfway point of our trip, we visited Boboi. This is a beach resort in southern Gambia, close to the border with Senegal. Accommodation ranges from the more standard mud huts to tree top houses with a simple mattress to sleep on. Our activities varied from attempting surfing to a rather longer than expected walk to the Senegalese border. The walk - which I proposed as a pleasant 8km round trip - quickly turned into a 9km one way journey (I’m going to have to work o n my map reading skills before September!).
