Pamela & Musa Gaiya
Having lived and ministered for almost a decade in Jos, Pamela knows that God answered her prayer as a teenager to guide her every step.
As a teenager, Pamela vividly remembers praying that God would direct her life. And over the years she has experienced that prayer answered many times, as her Heavenly Father has lead and guided her.
After making a commitment to follow Christ at an early age, Pamela joined Mission Africa in 1993, working as a PA in the Belfast headquarters. Blessed with a strong missionary influence in her upbringing, Pamela participated in the first Mission Africa STEP team to Nigeria in 1995. She returned to Nigeria in 2003 with a long–term commitment in sight and began working with Africa Christian Textbooks (ACTS) in Jos.
ACTS has played a significant role in Pamela’s ministry in Nigeria. Starting as their Administrative Secretary she has gone on to help in their newly established Publishing Department. Now most of Pamela’s time is spent editing and formatting books before they are printed.
In 2008 Pamela married Nigerian university lecturer, Musa Gaiya.
As a lecturer in Church History at the University of Jos, Musa’s interest has always been in missions. He has a busy timetable with both undergraduate and postgraduate students. He has participated in a number of international research collaborations, which have given him the opportunity to learn more about Islam – the faith that he was born into.
Musa has participated in writing 20 biographies of Nigerian Christian leaders, as a Project Luke fellow at the Overseas Ministries Study Centre, New Haven, Connecticut (USA). He has helped to assess some local manuscripts for publication by ACTS. And he is currently involved in a research programme on Global Pentecostalism.
Musa’s first wife passed away in 2005 leaving three grown up sons: Samuel, Luther and Calvin. Pamela and Musa’s daughter, Gracie, was born in 2009.
Pamela works in the publishing department of Africa Christian Textbooks (ACTS) in their headquarters in Jos, Nigeria. She is also engaged in ministering to women in her local community. Together Musa and Pamela assist with orientation for long–term missionaries when they first arrive in Nigeria.
Musa is lecturer in Church History at the University of Jos. He is also ordained in the ECWA Good News Church in the city. Recently, he was appointed to liaise with Mission Africa partners in Jos and Abuja.
