Sub-Saharan African Peoples

When you hop in your car to go anywhere, do you think about the journey or just the destination? Many times, missionaries travel long distances to reach their place of service. In East Africa, they may travel by road in a car or a taxi or on the back of a motorcycle. There are a few who travel by bus or by boat to get to the place where they are serving. The journey can have challenges like bad roads, an unforeseen storm, even malfunctions of the vehicle in which they are traveling. Most try to see the journey to get to their place of service as much of an opportunity for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ as they do the destination they are trying to reach in order to do that same thing. Pray for the missionaries in each of their journeys to take advantage of the opportunities God gives them to share His good news no matter if the journey proves easy or difficult. “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18 ESV).
