Get Involved

Missions is not a solo sport! I value the team God has risen up to partner in the ministry in Togo. Some of them serve with me on the field for weeks, months, or years. Others join with me through financial support. Others partner in prayer for the ministry. Please pray about how God is calling you to be involved in Togo and throughout the world!


“The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2)

God’s work in northern Togo is powered by prayer, and we as a team value prayer deeply as we have seen its effects in changed lives. Would you commit to pray for me and for the work God is doing in Togo? Please sign up to receive my monthly prayer letters by visiting the contact page.

The Hospital of Hope also has a variety of accounts through ABWE to pay for various exceptional expenses, for example when the cost of care for the sickest patients, is more than the poorest families can afford. Please prayerfully consider making a special or monthly gift to one of these funds as God leads:

My prayer is that God would raise up more people to accomplish His mission of reaching every people group in the world, and particularly in northern Togo. If God is calling you to be His servant on the mission field in Togo or anywhere in the world on a short-term or long-term basis, please get in contact with me or with ABWE to learn more about opportunities available and get in contact with the right person. No matter what skills you bring, God can use your willing heart to further His mission!
