Last week I was blessed to be a part of the West-Africa Sub-Regional Conference. It was four days full of anointed teaching and preaching. Later in the week I will post a pictorial report and some thoughts on the theme of the conference, “That Nothing Be Lost.”
One of the most impacting sessions was the Regional Missions Presentation given by Sis. Colleen Carter. She did a wonderful job of presenting the importance of reaching into the nations in West-Africa that do not yet have a United Pentecostal Church assembly or preaching point. I would like to share this need with you. Please pray that the door would be opened for the whole Gospel to be taken to these countries!
Cape Verde – Population: 505,606
Chad – Population: 11,206,152
The Gambia – Population: 1,705,212
Guinea-Bissau – Population: 1,610,746
Mali – Population: 13,010,209
Mauritania – Population: 3,290,630
Senegal – Population: 12,534,228
Sao Tome & Principe – Population: 163,000
Western Sahara – Population: 295,695 (Above Mauritania on the map. Included in West Africa for UPCI Missions Purposes)
These nine countries represent 44,321,478 people who need to hear the Apostle’s Doctrine; 44,321,478 people who do not have an Apostolic church to attend; 44,321,478 people who need to hear the Truth about Jesus. Let me bring this close to home; imagine there were no churches in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan. Roughly the same number of people would be effected.
West-Africa needs missionaries and A.I.M. workers. Please pray that God would send forth laborers into this immense harvest field. If you feel a call to missions, please prayerfully consider coming to West-Africa.
God is revealing His unseen Church!
