Engaging churches, Sub-Saharan AfricaThe president of the Togo Baptist Convention wrote to one of our missionaries in January, saying: “As of today there are many indigenous Baptist churches here in Togo who desire to engage an unengaged people group. The names of some being: Hahotoe Baptist, Notse Baptist, Gnagna Grace, Komah Baptist, Essotomde Baptist, Dapaong Grace Baptist and Moretan Baptist. But they would like to engage in partnership with a sister church in America.” They want to step out, but not alone.
Ask God to call these churches and others in Togo to specific unengaged peoples. Pray that Baptist missionaries will be invited to train these churches in how to “go.” Ask God to raise up churches in the United States that likewise long to engage the unengaged while working hand-in-hand with African brothers.
