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.

Latest prayer points

“I’ve been given a bit more time this term to focus on my own language learning. Please pray for that. It’s been great to be back [after a trip to Kenya and a teaching conference] and see that people are glad to see me too! I’ve had a bit of culture stress and homesickness this month. Please pray that I would settle back into things and that I would be disciplined in language learning and in practice.”

“Joe (not his real name) is one of my good friends here. Since the beginning, he has shown me great kindness and helped me to navigate my way through a new culture and new ways of doing things. He knows English, which has allowed us to talk about things at a deeper level than most people so far. We have talked about all sorts of things from Trump to marriage to Brexit! We have also been able to debate and talk about our beliefs too… He has not shown much openness to the truth but we have struck up a good friendship. I am praying for him. Will you?”

“I am currently teaching two classes, both beginners. One class is approaching the half way point and the other is a couple of weeks in. It’s great fun teaching, though a little challenging if they want to know something more and ask in their language. My second class is in my home area so it is a great opportunity to get to know some people near me. Pray that these classes will be a blessing to people and that they will bear fruit in relationship.”
