Chari River Guesthouse

Chad is a challenging place to minister. The extreme heat in this landlocked nation can rise to 50 degrees Celsius (122F). And hundreds of years of Islamic influence have made for a challenging spiritual climate. But there are wonderful open doors for ministry here, where among 140 unique ethnic people groups, up to eighty are still unreached. For this reason, AIM considers Chad one of our priority countries for reaching unreached peoples in the years ahead.While we already have a 25-year history with boots on the ground, the workers today truly are few.

The harsh conditions, isolation, and a lack of reasonable options for ministry breaks (a flight to anywhere starts at $800 per person), our missionaries and their families are vulnerable. We want to support and sustain these precious servants of God. And we need to increase our member force in Chad in order to meet the challenges (and embrace the opportunities) before us.

We believe this project is an essential part of that strategy. Even Jesus had a need to occasionally retreat from his demanding ministry in a time and place and culture that did not look much different from modern day Chad. While there are no mountaintops here, the banks of the Chari river offer their own kind of serenity and solitude. And within the walls of this new retreat center, our missionaries might even find a garden. We invite you to join us in making an investment in the effectiveness and longevity of AIM's ministry in Chad.

Construction is in full swing at the Chari River Guesthouse and Retreat. The center will include 10 self-contained guest units, a simple chapel, a perimeter fence, a pool, and a riverside dock area.

Total project cost: $700,000

Remaining Need: $80,000 (June 2018).
