Alan & Pauline Jordan

Sent from Ross-on-Wye Baptist Church

Alan and Pauline’s journey into cross-cultural mission started in 1993, when they felt the Lord’s call for Alan to leave his job as an RAF aircraft engineer and serve him somewhere on the mission field. They served with AIM for two years, working with AIM Air in Nairobi. When they returned to the UK, Alan finished his Theology degree at Bible college and Pauline ran the family home, but the desire to return to serve in Africa remained.

Kenya gained independence from Britain in 1963. Since then British tourism has been a key element of Kenya’s economy, however, unemployment, poverty and crime remain high. Whilst the majority religion is Christianity, Kenya’s ethnic diversity and vast countryside means there are still many unreached with the gospel.

In January 2019 they moved to Marsabit in northern Kenya to be part of a larger team working alongside the Africa Inland Church (AIC). Marsabit is 550km north of Nairobi, and is the political, social and economic centre of northern Kenya. It is also home to eight distinct people groups, including the Samburu, Gabbra, Borana and Somali peoples.

The Jordans live locally within Marsabit, and spent the first few months there setting up home and building relationships with the local Bishop and church leaders. Alan now teaches at the Northern Bible Training Centre, helping pastors grow in their knowledge of the Bible and training them in their pastoral ministry. Pauline teaches English.
