Joel is volunteering with GRN Southern Africa doing recording while he is being trained by mentors from partnering organisations.
His career objective is to serve God as a missionary.
Joel first heard about GRN while attending a missions conference in 2016. The same month, he attended a workshop to learn oral Bible storytelling.
The size of the harvest GRN seeks to reach and their lack of workers really struck Joel and so he sought ways to become involved.
Joel really likes the process of telling stories and asking questions to lead people to find spiritual treasures in them.
He has experience and training in storytelling, using braille and in children's ministry.
