Prayer requests for Togo

  • TG-0513, CDE Baptiste le Reveil Child Development Centre, asked that we pray for the success of the aquaponics project that they have recently begun. If successful, the project will play a significant role in helping children and their families get a wider range of more nutritious food. Please pray that crops will grow well and all the children will benefit greatly.
  • Pray for TG-0704, des Enfants Jericho d'Akoumape Child Development Centre as they plan to build appropriate classrooms for their registered children and students. Pray for wisdom and the resources they need to build.
  • Please pray for the Compassion Togo national staff as they look to relocate their office. Pray for God’s leading in that process; pray that they would be able to relocate smoothly and the new office will give them a strong base from which to expand their work across the country.
  • TG-0113, des Enfants La Grace Child Development Centre asks for prayer for the teenagers and older students registered with their program. Pray they will develop well and work hard; pray for them as they prepare their “My Plan for the Future”, a personal document that helps them articulate their dreams and come up with a roadmap to achieve them.
