Civil unrest in Chad – a response from BMS World Mission and from our Mission Partners Mark and Andrea Hotchkin

23 April 2021

Dear Church Partner

We are writing to you to update you concerning the situation in Chad and your Church Partners; Andrea and Mark Hotchkin. As you may be aware from the news, Chad experienced significant unrest over the weekend of 17/18 April resulting in the death of the President.  The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has strongly advised that all UK personnel should leave Chad immediately and gave assistance in doing so.

We continue to be in touch with all BMS World Mission workers remaining in Chad, and all British Mission Personnel have left the country safely. Andrea and Mark were already in the UK and BMS were in the process of organising their return. They have asked us to attach their update to this email.

They would value your continued prayers for them and particularly for the hospital and the country in the coming weeks. You can get an update on the BMS website here.

Thank you for standing with us in this challenging time — and please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your generosity as a BMS Church Partner.

Yours in Him


Rev Edwin J Penman

Church Engagement Co-ordinator
