Paul is serving in Chad, using Bible stories to teach English to young men.
Since his childhood, Paul’s heart has been longing for Africa. God has granted him many opportunities to explore this desire, and to investigate different options as he considered a long term future there. Through studying International Development and French, and then spending a year at Bible School, God has equipped Paul for practical service in Chad.
With large swathes of the country having never come into contact with the gospel, Paul considers it a privilege to play a part in taking it to those frontiers. Within the context of teaching English classes for adults he has the opportunity to study the gospel, from creation to Pentecost, with his students. Over the course of six months these classes provide the opportunity for students to better understand the truths of the prophets, sin, God’s love, salvation, and what it means to be a disciple of Christ.
After involvement in this ministry in a previous short term placement with AIM in Chad, Paul has now return to this ministry. Having developed deep friendships with a number of previous students, he is continuing to invest in those relationships, praying that God will grant more opportunities to follow up with more personal discussions about Christ and his saving work. Paul is also prioritising language learning, with a view to building better connections with those that he knows outside of the context of teaching English.
