Nine Baptized In Kara Campaign And A New Congregation Is Planted...

We are grateful for our part in extending the borders of the Lord’s kingdom. We are greatly encouraged by the tools we have that enhance the proclamation of the gospel in Togo. 

We are still in the raining season, thus the reduction in our evangelistic outreach programs. We used part of the month under consideration to take care of maintenance and renewal of the vehicle’s insurance, made it road worthy, service equipment, etc. 

Our major campaign in June was in Lama Kara, the capital of the Northern Region of Togo, about 400 km away from Kpalime. This trip was sponsored by Steven Ashcraft, a missionary in Northern Ghana who is also the coordinator of the Bear Valley Bible Institute extension programs in West Africa. Steven has been working in Kara and surrounding towns for a couple of years now. 

The thirteen campaigners included five students who speak the local language of the people of Kara. The campaign started on June 25th and ended on the 28th with a worship service. The campaigners returned on Monday, June 29th. At the close of the campaign, nine responded to the gospel invitation and were baptized. 

Activities at the campaign included tract distribution, house-to-house Bible study and open air preaching and film show at night. 

Church of Christ in Lama Kara
We were able to take a picture after the first worship service of the Kara Church of Christ in front of the structure where the church meets. The structure was constructed during the campaign. We were able to get a picture that included the thirteen campaigners who went from Kpalime.
