Inland Mission

Barry & Heather Mann

Sent from Winchester Baptist Church


Barry and Heather serve with AIM in Lesotho, based at Growing Nations.

Lesotho is a Kingdom totally surrounded by South Africa, whom they depend on, as their biggest employer and buyer of their main natural resource – water. Lesotho is made up of highland villages, where people live in extreme poverty and few have heard the gospel.

They have been serving with AIM at Growing Nations since 2012. Heather works as the project’s CEO, overseeing the finances, working on grant and project funding proposals and the overall strategic development, whilst Barry is the project’s communications specialist, involved in the development of farmer training materials, photography/video production and website development. A significant part of both of their roles at Growing Nations is the mentoring, coaching & spiritual development of the Basotho staff team. 

They are also AIM’s Unit Leaders for Lesotho and are responsible for the member care of 10 mission partners working across the country. Currently, Barry and Heather are in the UK on extended Medical Leave.
