We are missionaries with ABWE to Togo, West Africa. We're working to build up the church in Togo by training and equipping Togolese leaders in the Christian schools and Bible Institute.  Our goal is the spread the good news of Jesus and to make disciples for Him in Togo. 

We took a survey trip to Togo in January, 2012. You can read our journal entries of the trip by clicking here.

About Togo
The Togolese Republic is located in West Africa and has a population of 6.7 million. It's estimated that 69% of the people live on less than $2 (USD) per day.

French is the official language, although there are 37 tribes and each has its own language.  We attended French language school in Quebec.

Major religious groups include indigenous beliefs, Islam, and Catholicism. It's estimated that over 90% of the population, including those who claim to be Christians, still engage in some form of fetish practice.

Many churches are without pastors and there are many pastors who have only minimal theological training. We want to train them theologically and encourage them in their church planting and evangelism. 

The Christian Schools employ about 100 elementary and secondary teachers and these teachers are reaching over 3,000 children a year with the gospel. These children are the next generation of believers in Togo! We will provide ongoing teacher training and Bible-based curriculum and materials to the schools.

We're in Togo says, "for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edification of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12).
