28 – 31 March 2019
CfaN’s first Great Gospel Campaign of 2019 is planned for Lomé, the capital city of Togo. This small West African nation has a population of only 6 million people, and more than 1.5 million are concentrated in the greater Lomé area, making this an ideal place to have the greatest impact with the Gospel in this fast-growing country.
News about our next campaign in Lomé, Togo
Lomé campaign postponed
We rejoice in every opportunity to reach out with the life-giving message of salvation and we so value your participation in prayer and support to help us do it. It is harvest time for sure, but we also know that it is not always easy to attack the gates of hell. And right now, we are in yet another battle in the great commission of preaching the gospel.
Our technical team are on their way with the big trucks and crusade equipment to Lomé, Togo in West Africa for our campaign this week, but they have met with what has become an insurmountable problem. An unannounced change in the customs procedures at a border crossing has resulted in a long delay in getting the equipment to the campaign venue and time has now run out for this upcoming campaign. They just will not make it in time for the setting up of the campaign equipment and so we have had to postpone the date of the event.
We ask you to join us in prayer as preparation continues and we believe that the enemy of the gospel will not prevail or prevent us.
Together with you in Jesus,
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda
and the entire CfaN team
Sometimes, it’s slow going on the African roads. Winfried and the team have learnt to have plenty of patience.
CfaN’s first Gospel Campaign in 2019 is just around the corner. It’s time for the team to get back on the road and drive the equipment from Lagos to Togo.
Strongholds of Religion
Animism or fetishism is practiced by a large number of Togolese – even those converted to other religions such as Islam and Christianity. About half the population is Animist, 10% identify as Muslim, and about 30% are Christian. Only 10% of the population is Protestant. This is an area where witchcraft still has a strong hold on many.
Agriculture is the backbone of the economy, and Togo is generally self-sufficient in food production. Mining is also important, as Togo has the fourth biggest phosphate reserves in the world. Most of the population (65%) lives rurally, in villages dedicated to agriculture and livestock breeding.
