In 2005 Stu and Wendy left the UK to go and work in a school in Zambia, they were there for a year and a half, returning to the UK before having their eldest child. They always felt that God would one day ask them to serve Him abroad again, they just weren’t sure where or what timing. Exactly 11 years after first going, they left to go again and work at the same school, this time just for 4 months and accompanied by their three children Megan, Talia and James. Whilst there they felt strongly that God was asking them to commit to being there longer term. They have prayed about this since returning last December and really feel this is what God is challenging them to do.
Amano Christian School is an international school and currently has about 140 pupils ranging from 5-18 years old from a wide variety of backgrounds, socially, economically and spiritually. It teaches from a Biblical worldview and all students are encouraged to establish a lasting personal relationship with Jesus and become responsible members of their community. It provides a high standard of education in the most densely populated province of Zambia, enabling students to develop their full potential and go on to influence those around them for the glory of God.
Stu will be working alongside the Zambian workers on site, building on relationships formed on their previous visits as well as keeping things moving practically. He will also help out in the school where necessary. Showing God’s love in practical ways.
Wendy will be teaching in the school, providing a good level of education, as well as, encouraging the children in their walk with God. She will also be enabling the school to take on more children from their long waiting list.
Megan, Talia and James will attend the school, make friends, learn and grow.
The Wardles are seeking people who can join with them in the adventure God is taking them on, by praying and through financial support as they will get none of their finances provided by the school. They will be providing newsletter updates, so please sign up if you would like to receive them.
