Friday, February 18 – Togo
An 82-year-old clan leader in charge of the fetishes used in occult rituals attended a local ministry’s Bible seminar. He came to believe the Lord had given him grace to understand and accept the saving work of Christ, abandoned the fetishes of his sorcery and now invites villagers each day to listen to him share the gospel. Though he faces hostilities from relatives, voodoo leaders and most other villagers, he prays for them and continues sharing the gospel. Local missionaries need donations to offer such Bible and soul-winning seminars, visit homes, air radio gospel programs and follow up with new Christians. They request prayer for good health for team members and their families.
