Audrey and Colin Gibson - Lebanon

Lebanon is a country with many challenges, which is now almost overwhelmed by an influx of a large number of refugees from neighbouring countries. The needs therefore are huge, but so are the opportunities to show God’s love for people in many different ways.

We are working with the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD). Audrey works with children with special educational needs both in local schools and at the pioneering centre run by LSESD. Colin liaises with local and international partners to ensure that the various ministries can be effective and adequately financed.

Over recent years it has extended its ministry to provide practical assistance to refugees from the conflict in Syria.

Call 

To serve and be a witness to the people we meet each day

Role 

Audrey is helping children with special educational needs to achieve their full potential; Colin is working to raise funds for various ministries by improving links with local and overseas partner organisations.

Before moving to Lebanon in 2015 we lived in a small village in Somerset and attended the parish church there. We have been married for going on three decades and have two grown up children. Colin has a varied career background. He started out as a mining geologist and then became a financial adviser, followed by a flood defence engineer and then an information security manager.

Audrey first trained as a dental nurse but more recently spent 14 years as a teaching assistant in a primary school, latterly working with children with special needs. We spent four years in Zambia in the early 1990s where Colin was employed in the copper mines and we have both participated in short term mission trips to Eastern Europe and Bolivia.

We love Church Mission Society because it is long established, well respected and has a broadly based ministry. We like being part of a global family with common goals and appreciate the support it provides to people in mission.
