    Story

    In June, I will be shaving my head to raise money for Servants of the Word Bible College. As some of you may may know my hair has got a bit too long, so if want me to cut it please donate.

    Servants of the Words (SoW) is a Bible College in Gambia whose Mission is to: Multiply church leaders and grow churches by training effective gospel workers in disciple-making and expository preaching The school was started in 2012 to equip zealous and whole-hearted West African Christian leaders to teach and preach God's Word faithfully. Good Bible teaching is really lacking in the Gambia and West Africa in a Church context where Christianity is in the minority.

    Phase 1 of the project required £45,000 and built a classroom block, so that SoW students could have regular, full time classes. I visited this site in early 2018 and even helped with removing some of the rubble. Phase 2 aims to build a dormitory block to provide permanent residencies for students who come from further afield and requires £84,000. So far £48,000 has been raised, but a further £36,000 is needed so the dormitory can be ready for use in September 2019. The money raised for this project will be given towards this.
