Christ in Cote d'Ivorie
If you are anything like me… You probably have no idea where Cote d’Ivoire is located on the map. Times like these, I rely on my trust friend, Google.
Me: Hey Google, where is Cote d’Ivoire?
Google: “Here you go.”
It’s great how technology works, isn’t it?
So, now that we have an idea of where Cote d’Ivoire is at, next comes the all-important question of, “Who cares?”
Answer: We Do! And you should too.
Last week, evangelist and co-founder of LifeLight, Alan Greene spent time in Abidjan, a city within Cote d’Ivoire. During the week, he and Tom Gage (of Sioux Falls) were a part of Eyeglass clinics, serving people and sharing the gospel. They spent their time speaking in churches, training in evangelism, and proclaiming the Gospel in schools! The week was capped off by a 3-day festival packed full of music and action sports. Greene stated, “One of our goals is to mobilize and collaborate with gifted evangelists world wide. This week has been an incredible example of this. Evangelist proclaiming the gospel, eyeglass clinics with mission teams, BMX action sports evangelists, children’s evangelists, music evangelist, soccer evangelists and clinics, prison and school ministry, a business dinner, a women’s banquet, and 360 evangelists from all over Africa came to form a Network of Evangelists. We’re just getting started!”
Please continue to pray for Cote d’Ivoire that God will work in the hearts and lives of all those that were touched last week!
