Charles and Sarah West Zambia ABC-USA IM Ministries
Sarah and Charles West are missionaries of American Baptist International Ministries (IM). Since 1997, they have served in South Africa and in Zambia. They finished their service in Zambia in mid-2012. They are currently in transition, working with God and IM staff to discern their next place of service. Three months after the West's departure, IM suspended its partnerships in Zambia. During the suspension, IM and the West's cannot serve as channels to support ministries in Zambia. However, Charles and Sarah continue their active service as IM missionaries. They--and all the personnel of IM--are grateful for your continued support of Charles and Sarah!
