Jean and Ann are stationed in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. For the past three years they have been seconded to Trans World Radio. This commitment is now finished and they return to full time activity with SIM, involved in a variety of ministries: Jean is now Director for SIM Côte d’Ivoire and responsible for their team of five families and three singles. Ministries include Radio Fréquence Vie, Africa Transformation Initiatives, ministry to street children, unreached people groups, and women. There is also a work in Ferkéssédougou in the north of the country doing church planting and community development. Jean represents SIM on the radio board and at different events, networking with local pastors, churches, ministries and organisations.
Ann is developing a ministry of discipleship to women through artisanal activities. Women always want to get together to learn, and opportunities are many. The objective is to contribute to a change of thinking, doing and ultimately being, as they consider new and different ways to create and look at life in light of God’s Word.
