Faida Rachel Bahati is a mission intern with the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church.
Mission interns serve half of their three-year terms in international assignments and half in their home countries. Faida was commissioned in August 2012. Young adult mission service through Global Ministries expands participants’ mission vision and offers faith contexts for the use of skills.
Faida Bahati is from Kamelie, a city on the western shore of Lake Tanganyika in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and is a member of the Bethlehem United Methodist Church there, a congregation of the North Katanga Annual Conference. She is a graduate of Africa University, the United Methodist-related institution in Mutare, Zimbabwe. Her Bachelor of Science degree is in environmental studies and French. Faida has work experience with International DanChurch Aid and in youth education.
Faida expects that her service as a mission intern “will enrich my faith by learning with others ecumenically and experiencing the liberating power of God. It will allow me to grow up in faith by serving, loving, and ministering to others.”
