A new life but same passion for Fidelle

After fleeing the political instability of his native Chad and spending 7 years in a refugee camp, Fidele Mbaiornom and his family now call Toowoomba home.

While Fidele has spent the last 7 years in Toowoomba working as a casual labourer, mainly working for the council, his passion is to see African migrants hold onto their Christian faith through his ‘Ministry of Reconciliation in Jesus Christ’.

“People who come from Africa sometimes forget what God has done in their life,” he said. “So I encourage them to continue in the fire of God.”

“I tell them that we don’t only come to this country to get a job. We have been sent here to pray for revival in this country.”

Unfortunately, Fidele’s casual contract with the council has come to an end, so he is looking for a new job. Despite the fact that he worked as the chief accountant for the President of Chad, Fidele is humble enough to accept any labouring job.

“Any hard job I can do!” he said.
