As a founding director of Friends in Action (FIA), Mark has served in West Africa with FIA periodically over the last 14 years. Drilling in the name of Christ, Mark has been privileged to serve in the delivery of over 200 drilled water wells throughout Ivory Coast, Ghana and Burkina Faso.
Currently living in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, with his wife Louise and three young children (Joshua, Rachel and Anna) Mark drills water wells in partnership with mission organisations who have a passion for taking the gospel to unreached and very needy people groups. Prior to missionary service Mark worked both with government as a mines inspector, and in the drilling industry. He is an experienced geologist and drilling engineer.
His passion is to accelerate the process of taking the gospel to remote and unreached people groups in thirsty W. Africa through the giving of a cup of water in Christ’s name.
