About Togo

Togo is located in Western Africa and consists of six geographic regions and has a tropical climate.  Togo is located on the Atlantic Coastline of Africa,  wedged between Ghana and Benin and is among the smallest countries in Africa, however it is one of the highest standards of living on the continent due to its  valuable phosphate... deposits and well-developed exporting system of  agricultural goods such as coffee, cocoa beans, and peanuts.  Togo’s population is growing at a rate slightly higher than the sub-Saharan African average and well above the global average. Like other countries in the region, its birth-rate is high with about three-fourths of the population are age 29 or younger.   The population of Togo is made up of 56 people groups, with currently 7 unreached.  About half of the population professes to be Christian, however many of Togo’s population still practices various ancestral forms of Voodoo & believe in fetish type of beliefs.  About one-eighth of the population is Muslim.

What's Happening in Togo

In many ways, we are just beginning in the country of Togo. We are seeing host churches send missionaries way up into the northern area, having a big impact among the unreached people. Although many profess to be Christian, they are steeped in traditional beliefs and religions.  As our Live Students are sharing the truth of the Gospel, we believe that walls are being torn... down and God’s love is penetrating the hearts of the people.   We  are excited to see the growth that is taking place in this small nation and believe that God has mighty plans for the people of Togo.

Please Pray

Please pray for the walls of religion and practices of voodoo to fall and that the Gospel would grasp the hearts of the people. Pray for missionaries as they take the Gospel throughout Togo, that it would fall on fertile soil. Pray for laborers to rise up and take the Gospel throughout the land.
