The United Nations reports at least 95 people were killed in an armed attack on a village in central Mali on Sunday. It’s the latest in a series of deadly attacks among local ethnic groups, often based on differences in religion. Across the border, in Burkina Faso, numbers of our AG churches have been under threat and believers killed. In the midst of growing loss of life among Muslims and Christians in the region, let’s pray fervently that the Prince of Peace will restore stability and will open new doors to the gospel across West Africa. — Greg Beggs, AGWM Africa regional director
The women of Africa make a huge contribution to the continent’s economy. In Africa, women work hard; they are responsible for taking care of their families, they carry the biggest burden of HIV/AIDS, they are more likely to be poor, and young girls are often not allowed to attend school. Yet women are also a significant force in our Assemblies of God churches, often outnumbering men 2 to 1. Africa Oasis plans to target women’s empowerment initiatives in order to partner with local women’s groups and play a role in equipping women in areas such as micro-enterprise, literacy, small business training, family nutrition, and health education. Pray for open doors into training and discipling these ladies.
