Preaching Christ Plainly

Togo West Africa January 2010

January trip to Togo, West Africa by 5 men from FBC Celina. We saw over 500 Africans and all of them heard the Gospel. More than 200 prayed verbally to receive Christ as Savior. The focus of our work in northern Togo is the Lamba people group, an unreached group centralized in northern Togo and Ghana. This is our third trip to Togo. We will likely need to return two more times.

Learning about culture

This is a sacrifice that a "fetish-er" or "charlatan" (read 'witch-doctor') advised a fellow to leave out for his ancestors. See how far away everyone is from it?
