What a privilege to play a part in the Great Commission ! We want to express our gratitude to the Lord for His faithfulness to us these many years, most especially this past year 2020.

The first COVID-19 case was registered March 6, 2020 in Togo, West Africa. March 21, 2020, the government ordered the lockdown of all Churches in the country. So our last Sunday service was held Sunday March 15, 2020. Henceforth, we formed 11 groups in homes each having less than 15 members and every Sunday, myself and some brethren conduct service in those houses. Besides, I send a recorded message, 20 minutes long every Sunday morning and 10 minutes long every Sunday and Wednesday evenings to the brethren through WhatsApp. So far, we regularly visit the brethren and minister to them the best way we could. All the churches are reopened except some in the capital.
