Mark and Hannah are going to Chad to share the gospel with the Acacia* people who haven’t had the chance to hear about Jesus.
Mark and Hannah are really excited about the incredible opportunity it is to share the gospel with those who have never had the chance to hear it before. God has been speaking to them about doing this in Africa for a while. In fact, this was the topic of some of their very first conversations together!
They set off for a year of study at All Nations Christian College to learn how to best share the gospel across cultures. During this time, they learnt of the great need and large numbers of people groups who remain unreached in the north of Africa, and Chad in particular kept coming into their thinking. Chad is one of the poorest countries in the world, both materially and spiritually.
The local government in Chad has invited AIM, knowing they are a Christian organisation, into a Muslim area to help run the local government centre. Mark and Hannah will be joining this new team to the Acacia* people to teach basic healthcare and run English language classes as well as creating sports initiatives. This is an amazing opportunity to build relationships and share Christ with those who have never heard of Jesus’ love for them. They will also join the small local church in the area and encourage them to reach out to their community and share their faith with their neighbours.
Language learning will be a big priority. In September 2021, Mark and Hannah start full time French language learning in Albertville, France before heading on to Chad in 2022. There they will start learning Arabic and the local language as well. Their prayer is that as they live among the Acacia* people, they will be able to share the good news of Christ with them in their own language and in a way they understand.
Could you partner with Mark and Hannah in this work?
