Our ministry is funded entirely by the donations of people who believe that God is at work in Togo, and that he is redeeming people by the gospel of Jesus. If you would like to join the team of people making our mission possible, there are two ways you can help:

Thank you!!

We thank you so much for your sacrificial gift(s) that allow us to continue doing what God has called us to do, and we pray that the Lord would "fill up the hole," as they say in Togo, that is left from your donation. We know that our ministry would not be possible without people like you. But even more importantly than your financial support we covet your prayers, so would you please consider committing to pray for Togo and for the work God is doing here!
