About Central + West Africa and Francophone Nations

As this region recovered from the most recent Ebola epidemic, it was hit again with COVID-19 amid malaria season. As governments struggle to come through with promised aid, the church comforts believers, serves its communities and follows God’s call to take the gospel to French- and Arabic-speaking people across the Sahel.

Central + West African nations with Foursquare presence: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gabon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea (Conakry), Guinea-Bissau, Guinea Equatorial, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Republic of Congo, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo. 

Francophone territories also overseen by this area missionary: French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and New Caledonia.
