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.
Joel's recording and editing skills are being developed in the field and through training. He edits the day's recordings during the evening and this leaves him with day time to do other interesting ministry jobs, like working with the people.
Joel is called by God to record the gospel in many languages. If you would like to support Joel financially, see his support page.
