Great Commission Day 2022: Jesus Among Africa’s Urban Poor (Español)

Africa has the fastest rate of urbanization in the world, and this rapid population increase in cities has only intensified poverty for the urban poor. In a city in West Africa, God led these international workers to an informal settlement—an entire community of people living in shanties and scrap-made structures. Ministry here isn’t just about proclaiming the gospel in word, it’s about meeting the acute physical and practical needs of a group of impoverished people. It’s about building relationships of respect and trust. The love of Christ compels these workers to be present and delight in pointing this community towards the hope of Jesus.

He Holds Their Futures

In this West African country, women without husbands are extremely vulnerable, and so are their children. Opportunities are nearly nonexistent. Four years ago, three women started a handicraft business to provide skills and income for these at-risk women, along with scholarships, business loans, and emergency funds for widows and single mothers. Though the work here is unfinished, God is moving, providing, and bringing hope.
