A shortage of trained evangelists, lay readers and deacons in the West African diocese of the Gambia is being tackled by priests seconded from Ghana and Zimbabwe. A priest from Accra and another from Harare will spend three years in the Gambia helping to train and support vocations amongst clergy and laity. The initiative is part of the Anglican mission agency USPG’s Exchanging Places programme.
