“The harvest here is indeed great, and the laborers are few and imperfectly fitted, without much grace, for such a work. And yet, grace can make a few feeble instruments the means of accomplishing great things—things greater even than we can conceive.” That quote by William Burns easily sums up our ministry here in Togo. As you look through this site please consider how you can be a part of our dynamic team. If you are interested drop us a note via our Team Leader and we’ll be sure to respond. Enjoy your tour.

Without a doubt, many of us feel that the God has called us to be proclaimers of the Good News of Jesus Christ. Some feel that we may be doing wrong to take our "culture" into a different cultural setting, but we are not there to change their culture or change the people of Togo. We are going because the Bible has commanded us to take the News of what Jesus Christ has done and can do for them. What is this Good News, you ask? You can find more by clicking on Good News.
Two of Satan's greatest attacks on those with a heart for missions are discouragement and disunity. Rachel Sias compiled various quotes and sayings into a daily calendar entitled "Encouragement for the Missions Heart". Our prayer as well as her prayer is that you will also look on the multitudes and your heart will be broken with the compassion and love that the Lord Jesus had for us. You can see these thoughts by clicking on Mission's Thought from Togo.
