My name is Savanna and I am serving in a major city in Northeast Africa reaching local women and refugees.
I am attending university where I will be able to meet and build relationships with local women who are similar to me and have similar passions. I also teach English to refugees in the city among coworkers who are, themselves, refugees.
This people group is considered “frontier people” according to the Joshua Project with only about 0.08% that are Christian. For many of my students and coworkers, I am the only Christian they have ever met. Though there are a few believers among this group, they often work in secret for their own safety.
As a Westerner, I have the great advantage of being more open about my faith.
