Brandon and Kate Snook have been called to serve in the nation of Togo. The Snooks have an extensive background in medicine as well as inBible training; Togo is a nation that needs the Gospel. Brandon and Kate will be teaming up with the Association of Baptist for World Evangelism to help reach the people of Togo through one of the two Christian hospitals run by ABWE in Togo: Hospital of Hope in the North and Hospital Baptiste Biblique - HBB in the South. These hospitals function to help the suffering Togolese population’s physical needs. Moreover, they exist as a platform to reach lost souls for Christ, plant indigenous, local, Bible-believing churches, and train the Togolese in medicine and surgery.
We believe God commands us, as Christians, to go into all the world and preach the gospel. Our mission is to bring Christ's story of love and redemption to the small West African country of Togo. By providing needed medical care to this animistic and poverty-stricken nation, we hope to be part of God's plan to win the Togolese to Himself.
"Although still young, the Shipe family – all nine of them – are now Tanzanian veterans! Certainly there are always things to be learned about a language and culture, but the larger Shipe family fits into African culture beautifully, and that is important.
Reaching into the Datooga culture is not easy. The language and customs are not really known by those outside the tribe, and many within the tribe seem to like it that way! The Datooga are (historically) nomadic and somewhat resistant to the Gospel. Yet the Shipes are making an inroad, and have a preaching point/nascent church underway not too far from their present home in the city of Babati. Pray for them!"-GFF
Keep up with the Shipe family through their blog:
Morocco is a predominately Muslim country, making this mission in Africa both sensitive and dangerous. Pray for the Coyler family as they seek to minister to the people of Morocco.
