Audrey and Colin Gibson - Lebanon

Lebanon is a country with many challenges, including a large influx of refugees from neighbouring countries. The needs therefore are huge, but so are the opportunities to show God’s love for people.

We are working with the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD) whose aim is to help strengthen the Church and serve the local community in Lebanon and the wider Arab world. 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.


To serve and be a witness for Christ to the many people we meet each day.


Audrey helps children with special educational needs and Colin is a fundraiser for various ministries, improving links with local and overseas partner organisations.

More about Audrey and Colin Gibson

Prior to moving to Lebanon in 2015, we lived in a small village in Somerset and attended the parish church there. In 2017 we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and have two grown up children. Colin has had a varied career background - mining geologist, financial adviser, flood defence engineer and finally information security manager – with plenty of project management work throughout. 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.
