Guinea’s mineral wealth makes it potentially one of Africa’s richest countries, but its people are among the poorest in West Africa. Experiments with socialism and a two-year rule by junta have taken a toll on the people of Guinea. The 2010 election ushered in civilian rule but led to violent ethnic clashes as well. In addition, hundreds of thousands of refugees from Liberia and Sierra Leone have strained Guinea’s struggling economy. The Evangelical Fountain of Grace (EFG) was born when a pastor (Etienne Leno), a missionary, an economic operator and a young entrepreneur saw the economic plight of the faithful believers in their church. These four Christian men set up a small micro-credit fund to help women and girls develop small, income-generating enterprises. This fund has improved the economy of many women and connected them to the church. This success then prompted them to create a non-government organization to diversify their activities, improve social conditions, promote evangelism and establish churches. Partners International began partnering with Evangelical Fountain of Grace during the Ebola crisis in 2015.
Post a prayer regarding this ministry:
Help in the here and now, hope for eternity. Holistic ministry – reaching out to the “whole” person, physically and spiritually – is our partners' key strategy for evangelism in the hardest to reach, least-Christian places. Not just because Christian compassion demands it, but because it is how Jesus approached His own ministry.
Ministering to Children
Partners International knows that children are the hope for the nations and the future of the Church. Therefore, we come alongside nearly 60 ministry partners in their efforts to minister to and reach children and youth for Christ.
- educational sponsorships
- youth camps
- school building construction
- outreach to children living in the slums and streets
- drug and alcohol rehabilitation among youth
- care for youth in HIV/AIDS-affected families
- disability therapy
- discipleship and mentoring
Despite today’s increasing development, technology, and forward thinking, women continue to be viewed as second-class citizens in many parts of the world. They are mistreated, oppressed, abused and devalued. We partner with indigenous ministries to create programs that provide education, counseling, training and income-generating vocations for women.
Partners International seeks to show women their innate value in Christ and bring dignity and purpose in situations of shame and despair. We understand the importance of women in God’s plan for His Kingdom. Will you join us in our ministry to women?
Give to Nepal
“The situation in Nepal has worsened due to lack of petrol/diesel. All food items have become very expensive. There are very few vehicles on the road because of lack of gas. Petrol from China is expected but is not a long-term solution as the roads are very damaged. People are suffering now. We pray things will improve soon.” – Prem James, Area Director for South Asia
