Mark & Barbara Phippen

“I (Barbara) have been busy teaching theology students there twice a week, and continuing to teach student wives once a week. What the students find most useful is the opportunity for conversation in English. The Language Centre students recently did short presentations about themselves.  I was fascinated to find out more about them and their home countries and how they consider learning English as essential for their education and future work as pastors and evangelists. The Ladies Bible study is studying Mark’s gospel and we recently read the story of Jesus stilling the storm. I was greatly encouraged that one of the Kenyan ladies led our study recently. At the moment, I co-lead this group with Susie, a fellow missionary; it is our ultimate aim to put ourselves out of a job.”
