Chris & Sarah work in Southern Region’s office, based in Nairobi, Kenya.

The Powers lived and worked among the Shibushi unreached people in Mayotte from 2010-2019. Mayotte is a small tropical island located in the Indian Ocean. It became an overseas department of France in 2011 and has since become the home of many immigrants from Africa and neighbouring islands. The islanders practise folk Islam but French development has also brought a modern secular culture to the island.

On Mayotte, the Powers ran a School Support & English Centre in the community where they helped children with basic literacy, French and maths and taught English courses to youth and adults. This met a real need in the community and was an excellent way to serve local families. Chris and Sarah intentionally lived out and shared their faith as they participated in community life and invested in relationships with the people around them.

In 2019, the Power family moved from Mayotte to Nairobi, where Chris and Sarah began serving in the Southern Region office as Regional Administrative Officer and Member Care Officer.
