São Tomé e Príncipe

(sow toh-MAY ee PRIHN-sih-pih) – “Pastor Tiago, general secretary of the Baptist Convention of São Tomé and Príncipe, asks for prayer for the young people of his country. He said that 80% of the youth want to leave São Tomé and Príncipe for education and work, primarily in Europe. Of the Christian young people who are staying in the country, most do not want to take on leadership responsibilities in the church. He requests that we pray for those whose hearts were stirred during last month’s national conference for Baptist youth. Intercede for them to catch an Acts 1:8 vision for carrying out Jesus’ Great Commission at home as well as to the ends of the earth.”
