‘F’*

Sent from Carey Baptist Church, Reading

Until 2020 F* was part of a team providing English teaching alongside serving in evangelism and church planting on the Indian Ocean Islands.

After completing teacher training, F taught for three years in a primary school. His church then appointed him to work for two years as an apprentice working amongst international people in Reading, teaching English and leading English Bible studies.

F went to Kenya for seven months in 2007 with AIM’s short term programme, where God instilled in him a passion for reaching the unreached in Africa. He then returned to Kenya as part of a TIMO team in 2014, seeking to reach the Samburu people of Lchakwai in northern Kenya with the gospel. It was very much ‘on the job training’ to equip the team for a life of ministry, whether in Africa or elsewhere.

Following the completion of the team in 2016, F* joined a team on the Indian Ocean Islands, where he taught English and sought to make Jesus known as he built relationships with the local community.

* F’s name has been removed for security purposes. He worked in a location in the Indian Ocean Islands where traditional mission work is not always welcome.

 

 

 

 

Latest Prayer News

Please pray for a number of retired AIM missionaries who are currently in hospital; especially for Netty Sinclair who has just received a difficult diagnosis and is very ill.

On Tuesday 10th April a number of us from the office attended a thanksgiving service for the life of Colin Molyneux who served with AIM in various capacities for over 35 years, including in Kenya, Madagascar, Chad and the UK. During the service Peter Maclure, a retired AIM missionary, read out a tribute to Colin’s work with AIM which you can read here. Please pray for Colin’s wife, Rosemary, and the wider family as they continue to mourn a much loved husband, father, brother and grandfather. Give thanks for the ways in which God blessed and used Colin throughout a life which has been characterised as “a life lived for Jesus”.

Indian Ocean Islands

These beautiful tropical islands are 99.9% Muslim and for security reasons we refer to this area as the ‘Indian Ocean Islands’ rather than naming individual islands. Islam is deeply rooted on these islands and to be an islander is to be a Muslim. There are a small number of believers on each island but many follow Jesus secretly for fear of rejection and persecution.
