Although raised as part of a protestant denomination in South Africa, religion seemed to Noah little more than a tradition, or worse yet, merely an unfounded yet cherished faery tale. Faith was never a reality for him, neither theoretically nor experientially. As a result, he lived many years as an agnostic under a ubiquitous miasma of apathy and silent misery.
Through a series of finely and divinely orchestrated events God, however, reached him via the DVD ministry, and after a protracted struggle against his own stubborn self, he was eventually baptised as the only Adventist in his family. He currently serves his home congregation as deacon, Sabbath school teacher, and (provisionally) elder. Although he works in the IT industry he has now found his true identity in God and yearns to do something more meaningful and permanent with his life in God’s service. Consequently he attempted to be a Bible worker, but due to diverse unfavorable circumstances it proved unsuccessful and came to an unfortunate end after only one year. Disappointed, he felt constrained to return to the IT career he had left behind. However, he found no peace here. Having been inspired by AFM a few times, his discontent compelled him against his own nature to apply as missionary. Success here placed him as missionary to the Tai-Kadai project where he will be serving as English teacher, and through friendship evangelism, hope to share the glad tidings in word and deed.
