Phil and Carolyn began serving in West Africa in 2013. The region was relatively stable at the time, with good inter-communal relationships making it safe for local Christians and Western missionaries to live and work there. Tragically, the security situation has now deteriorated, bringing many changes to life and ministry.
Ian Flanders of GBM Radio was invited to visit Togo in West Africa, which is sandwiched between Ghana and Benin, and two countries west of Nigeria. Christians there regularly listen to Ian’s French language radio programmes. This was an important opportunity to connect with his audience.
Partnerships are often crucial in the work of mission. In recent years, Derek French of GBM Radio has had a fruitful partnership with Gerard and Philippa Chrispin and their prison ministry. Here Derek and Gerard explain how that has been working.
