Serving & supporting mission

Chad became independent from France in 1960. Since then, its politics have been characterised by violence, coups and insurgencies. It is a secular state with freedom of religion. Muslims are dominant in government, trade and the army, although they are only just the majority religion (approx 53%).

From 2013-2015, Hannah was part of a team working amongst the Bara people in South-Central Madagascar. Hannah’s main role in this team was to enable other members to carry out their ministry through teaching their children. Through this work Hannah experienced the body of Christ in action, as each member served the team using their particular gifts and skills.

This team has now finished but Hannah’s call remains, to facilitate mission through teaching the children of missionaries (sometimes known as MK’s – missionary kids).

To do that, in 2016 Hannah moved to N’Djamena, Chad to teach at Wellspring Academy. A ministry of Africa Inland Mission, Wellspring Academy was set up in 2010 primarily to serve missionaries. Now the school serves serves families working cross culturally through their day school as well as a twice-yearly homeschool weeks for students being homeschooled across the country.

Hannah teaches Grades 1-3, with 8 nationalities currently represented in her class. She enjoys this diversity of ages, backgrounds and personalities and it excites her to see the way the Lord has led families from all over the world to serve him in Chad.

Hannah works with the other staff members to develop policy and curriculum to further establish and grow the ministry of the school. Hannah also continues to study French, meeting for prayer and Bible study with a local friend each week. She is also involved with the local church and seeks to continue building relationships in her local community.
