More about Paul and Sarah Tester
Paul continues to be a lay minister at St John the Evangelist in Lima, where Sarah teaches in the Sunday school. We are enjoying bringing up our children who were all born here in Peru.
Both of us have had the blessing of growing up knowing Jesus. Sarah first felt God’s call to South America as a teenager, when she was praying about which school subjects to choose. She felt God calling her to learn languages and to serve him as a missionary.
We met at Durham University and began to explore further God’s call on our lives. Having graduated with degrees in languages (Sarah) and civil engineering (Paul), we initially spent a year in Peru serving with the Anglican Church. As a couple we felt God confirm our call and after returning to the UK and working for a number of years (Sarah is a qualified teacher and Paul as a chartered civil engineer) we trained at Redcliffe College’s Centre for Mission Training and returned to Peru in 2007.
Above all, we want people to truly know Jesus, to experience his love and to share his love with others.
