Restore church missionary to zambia, africa

personal statement from chad

With a passion for missions and continued confirmation from the Lord I have accepted a volunteer position at A.K.C.L.I Village Of Hope in Zambia Africa ( 

I have a 13-year career background in Advanced Electrical Power System testing, commissioning, project management and training both locally and internationally. A few years ago, in response to Gods amazing love, I began to pursue every opportunity possible to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through joining the local Church and short-term mission’s projects internationally.

On a recent short-term mission’s trip in early 2018 to Zambia Africa, Village of Hope, I was part of a team building a Library for the Primary/Secondary School and the new Hope College Of Education. While I was there, discussions and plans began to take place to build a future Vocational Technical College at Village of Hope. With continued confirmation from the Lord I know this is where He is calling me to serve full time and apply the career training I have received to serve in Africa.

In July of 2018 I will be leaving for Zambia Africa VOH to join them full time in the efforts with directing and coordinating the Vo-Tech college programs and building initiative. I will be living in the village that is home to 85 children and has a school that serves over 600 children from the surrounding villages. 

How can you help?

Be apart of my sponsorship team and help me reach my goal!
This is a new adventure for me and a big step of faith. I am so excited for what God has in store!

I will need to raise my entire budget of $1,000 a month. This pays for my daily living expenses while living in Zambia.

I want to thank you for taking time to look over this packet and hearing out what God is doing in my heart. If you would like to see or hear more about Village Of Hope Zambia please see go to
