God brings growth when we sow seeds, even small seeds.
In the Samaritan Strategy training, participants are taught theory and practical methods.
The training leads participants to participate in their community … to do something.
We call these as “Seed Projects”
SMALL-SCALE MINISTRY PROJECTS THAT ARE CARRIED OUT BY THE LOCAL CHURCH AND THAT DEMONSTRATE GOD’S LOVE TO THE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY.

Pastor Robert a wholistic minded leader in the midst of the crisis showing us the portion of land he used to sow the onions. He is the director of a Bible school but decided to set a personal example to challenge his students. Onion harvested in hard time and waiting to be sold when the offer will diminish on the market. For sure pastor Robert will make a lot of profit. Pastor Robert is the director of the Free Will Baptist Bible school. This personal experience will allow him to have something to share with others and impact them.
Pastor Apollos is one of our champions. He lives in Bouna in he Northern part of the country. After being exposed to 3 trainings(2 in Bouna and 1 in Duekoue), he has changed his mind and has started impacting his community. His main branch has 40 members but has 7 other congregations in remote areas. With the need of a school in a village he has started something very small that has given birth to a school with 2 classes. By meeting the need of this community, he has today a church in this village with 40 people who have come to the knowledge of Christ as a result of his action.
- Please pray for Bouna where people are recovering after 10 years of occupation by the rebellion.
- Pray for the 2 VCs we plan to organize in Daloa and Bouake this September. We need God’s provision for the coming of the speaker and to help with the organization.
- Pray that we can find a volunteer to remind people and gather the testimonies which are a crucial part of our ministries. Actually a lot of things are happening on the ground and we need some feedback
- Pray for God to give us all kind of opportunities to share the wholistic message
- Pray for our champions as we want to organize them and use them.
- Pray for the health condition of Eden my third born. We need God’s provision to take care of her.
