What We Do
Building relationships, serving others with the example of Christ.
At the invitation of of the government, ABWE has agreed to build a hospital. The health conditions in West Africa are poor, at best. The country is one of the poorest in the world, infant mortality rate is high, and disease in rampant. In addition, ABWE is building a radio station to partner with the Hospital of Hope. We aim to build relationships, ministering to the immediate needs of those in West Africa in order to share Christ and offer them something far longer lasting.
Togo is a very narrow country. We are serving in the city of Mango where the three bordering countries are 60 miles or less from us. Through radio, we can reach beyond geographical borders to share great biblical truths that can change lives. Radio provide a source of connection in the community, drawing new believers with follow-up discipleship. Andy is working with the technical aspects of the radio station, training local Togolese to reach out to their own people through the ministry of radio broadcasting.
The hospital opened in 2015 and draws in hundreds of people each month with physical needs from Togo and the surrounding countries. The hospital includes a 43-bed surgical hospital, outpatient clinic, and community health and development programs. The Hospital of Hope will supply medical care, compassion and the Gospel to a region within the 10/40 window. Amanda coordinates logistics for all in-country travel and lodging for short and long-term volunteers, leads ladies’ Bible studies among the missionary community and one-on-one with Togolese, and is the treasurer for Hope Radio. She is also able to do some home visits to women, building relationships and introducing Jesus.
