If you travel much in West Africa, you will soon find yourself behind a huge truck overloaded with goods and sometimes with a goat or two tied to the top. Truck drivers travel from coastal countries, where ships bring in goods to be delivered all over West Africa. What would a church look like for such a transient group of people? IMB personnel, Southern Baptist volunteers, and local Baptist churches are partnering together to begin the very first “Trucker Church.” A restaurant in Cote d’Ivoire that is usually closed on Sundays is offering their space for a group to meet.
Lift up this body of Christ as they come together for worship and fellowship. Pray for local churches to adopt the ports where the truckers gather as they await loads to haul. Pray for the believing truckers to be bold in their faith as they travel all over West Africa.
