ADJOHOUN, Benin (BP)--More than 250 people of Benin's Weme people group accepted Christ when Southern Baptist volunteers conducted eye and dental clinics in eight villages.
LUSAKA, Zambia (BP)--One prayer for the boat, as it carries their family across the river. One prayer for the 4-wheeler, slogging through red African mud. And innumerable prayers for the people at the end of the trail.
This is the pattern followed by Daren and Shawna Davis, missionaries to the Lozi of western Zambia.
"To get to the Lozi is difficult. But once we get there, the people are excited that we're there," Daren Davis said. "They're eager to learn the Word of God, and they're eager to hear the gospel. And then they are eager to tell it to other people."
Encouraged by that eagerness, the Davises work to share God's love with the Lozi, who live in remote villages near the Zambezi River.
RICHMOND, Va. (BP)--Three new leaders are helping the International Mission Board's Office of Mobilization sharpen its products and services to better meet the needs of Southern Baptists.
