Answer to Prayer

The Alliance of Evangelical Churches and Missions of Niger (AMEEN) continues to develop as a united, visionary and cross-denominational organization.

Challenge for Prayer

This pioneer land still needs missionaries for all parts of the country. Loving ministry by Christian missionaries – working through aid, development, health and education – has won credibility for the gospel and increased interest and response from both Muslims and animists. Pray for more labourers. There is a growing contribution to missions by Nigeria and Brazil. Pray for sensitivity in helping small, young churches and their leaders to maturity.
