Jane van den Berg - Supported
Ivory Coast, West Africa
Jane is a missionary in Ivory Coast, Africa. She grew up in Ivory Coast as a missionary kid, where her parents translated the Scriptures into the native language. Jane grew up seeing the great need around her and God is now using her giftedness in serving Him. Her ministry includes construction of a school, writing and editing course work for the school, teaching basic computer skills, teaching and tutoring, and financing the schooling of several students.
A few facts:
What does an average day look like?
Exercise, shower, and eat. Go to the girl's school (CCFF), stopping in town to do purchasing when necessary. I also do necessary purchasing on days I don't teach. Greet each worker at the site, taking care of any issues. Some days I teach a class, some days I do administrative jobs in the office, and some days I tour the construction site. Eat at 12:30, hang out with the girls and the dorm mom until 2pm when classes begin again. Then I write curriculum in the afternoon. I leave the school after 5pm, stop at the cyber cafe to do email and then go home. I cook, eat, do a couple Sudoku puzzles and a round of anagrams (mental exercise) or some handiwork, have my quiet time and go to bed at 10 pm.
What do you love about your ministry?
Investing in the lives of those I work with one-on-one, teaching whatever needs to be taught.
