Africa

As big cities across Africa continue to develop their infrastructure, financial moorings, business empires, and leaders, the cities become magnets for those living in poor rural and bush settings. Life can be very difficult in the big cities of Africa, yet people have hope that life will somehow get better in them.

ABWE missionaries have focused in on these large cities with their groups of religious and ethnic origins. It is not unusual to see Fula cattle herders or Toposa tribal people walking the streets of the big cities. Reaching the various tribal and ethnic groups in any country can be quite difficult. But when they come to us, they do because of our medical ministries, literacy programs, radio programs, and other tools used to introduce the life-changing message of the gospel.

The African continent, with its population of just over 1 billion people, is a rising star among the continents of the world. As the world invests financially, our prayer is that God’s people will send business people, Bible teachers, healthcare workers, school teachers and many more people with a heart to help the people of Africa know Christ as Savior.

Missionaries are also needed to show the light of Christ by serving people in limited-access countries in Northern Africa.
