ABTStract follows Kyle & Ann Abts and their two wonderful children Zion and Gabrielle in their journey. They both served, as singles in Cote d'Ivoire in the mid 1990's. They later married in the USA and arrived in Nigeria in July 2000.
They are trained and raise their support through Food for the Hungry (FH). Yet, FH does not have projects in West Africa so they have been seconded to various projects in Nigeria with World Renew (formerly Christian Reformed World Relief Committee CRWRC) in the area of relief and development in urban areas (cities of Jos, Lagos, Abuja & Makurdi).
Kyle was the National Coordinator of Urban Ministry - empowering community leaders in literacy, micro-credit, health, and Christian value formation - but will turn over the duties to Nigerian leaders over the next few months.
When this project concluded, Kyle was seconded to Sports Friends (an SIM initiative). This project works with local churches to empower leaders in utilizing sports as a "friendship" development and sharing of good news.
Ann remains committed to mental, spiritual and social health of missionaries and Nigerians. She is involved in member care and trauma healing efforts.
They hope that all is well with you and appreciate taking your time to visit their website!
