Information Technology Consultant and Trainer, Ghana
Paul and Ali Federwitz are missionaries in Ghana. Ali was born and raised in Akron, Ohio. At a young age she voiced her desire to become a teacher and never strayed from that goal.
Paul was born in Liberia, West Africa, and lived there until he was 15 years old. As a son of missionaries, he knew that he would someday return to Africa as a missionary. Paul and Ali met while attending Concordia University, where Paul received a degree in Computer Science and Communications.
Paul and Ali have been serving with LBT in Ghana since 2007. Paul is an information technology consultant and trainer. He works closely with the Ghana Institute of Linguistics, Literacy, and Bible Translation (GILLBT). He helped GILLBT develop the people and infrastructure needed to provide computer services for their organization and the people who work with them.
Ali works with the Mobile Member Care Team (MMCT). MMCT is a cooperative, inter-agency service that provides training, consultation, counseling, crisis response, and referral for cross-cultural workers. They help missionaries to not just survive the stresses of cross-cultural ministry, but to thrive.
Paul and Ali have three children: Hannah, Levi, and Eden
