Are the people of Africa calling you?


Paul, seeking the Lord’s will, saw a vision of man who “prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia and help us.”  Africa has always been an intriguing place, with its many cultures, languages, and religions.  Reaching this part of the world with the Gospel can be overwhelming.  As with David Livingston, the great missionary who buried his heart in Africa, there is a need for missionaries with this same kind of heart to reach the people of this great continent.  

Middle eastern cultures, satanic cults, civil wars, and poverty have plagued Africa.  It is now a breeding ground for fear and darkness. What an opportunity to shine the Light of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. He is their  only hope!

Here are some frequently asked questions and other information about Baptist Missions to Forgotten Peoples.

Why Should I Consider Africa?

With Africa being the second most populous continent in the world, making up 16% of the world’s population, the opportunities and need for missionaries is staggering!  There are 3000 distinct people groups and over 2000 languages throughout the continent. Africa has 1.5 billion people within 54 countries living in darkness without Christ.

A place where great missionaries have yielded their lives for the cause of Christ is still a place where many souls are hopeless without Christ. You could be the answer to their need! God can use you to take the light of the gospel to the peoples of Africa.

Are African Countries Hard to Get Into?

Most countries are open, but several in the North are limited access. Many have experienced terrible wars and civil conflicts.  Yet, divers cultural groups are often waiting for missionaries to come. Others are not so inviting.  A missionary to Africa must be able to adapt and seek the Lord on innovative ways to get to the people God has placed on their heart.
