Randy and Carolyn Adams were appointed global missionaries in 1995 to the West African nations of Togo and Benin. They were able to open up new works in the nations of Gabon and Niger in 2000, and in 2002 the Central African Republic was opened. Also in 2002, the Adamses were given the additional responsibility of Area Coordinator to French West Africa, and in 2012 the English nations were added, extending their responsibilities to include twenty-three nations.

Training has been an important part of their involvement from the beginning. They worked closely with the national leadership, teaching and training the men and women God has called into His harvest. As a result, the UPCI of Togo was nationalized in 2010, and Benin attained nationalization in 2014.

In 2014 the Adamses were appointed Regional Director to the Africa Region effective January 1, 2016. As Regional Director they now serve as liaison between the many nations and churches in Africa, the missionaries, and Global Missions.

Africa Forward

So thankful for a God that hears us when we pray! We join in prayer with our brothers and sisters around the world -- praying for wisdom and strength in these difficult days. We pray for governments to make wise decisions for their nations. We pray for church leaders to make wise decisions for their constituents. And above all, we pray that the people of God would be a light in these dark times. We do not fear because our hope is in the God who never changes. Be strong in the Lord! ...

Africa Forward

Country Highlight: eSwatini (South/Central subregion)

Missionary Representative: The Jonathan Parker family

* This small landlocked area, also the second smallest country on the continental mainland, was formerly known as Swaziland.

* In spite of its size, this land is rich in heritage, filled with beautiful scenery, and home to Africa's Big Five. Its population is estimated at 1.1 million.

* There are 22 United Pentecostal churches in the country; this is a nationalized UPCI work.

• Currently the eSwatini Apostolic Bible Institute (EABI) has 6 campuses teaching the GATS Certificate Level courses; there are just over 50 students in total.

* Their goal is to establish a full-time Bible School.

Please pray for this nation, for the national leaders and pastors, and for revival! Also pray for the Parker family: Jonathan, Monica, Liam, and Kylie. There is power when we join our faith together in prayer. Victory is from the Lord!
