Luke and Charlotte Crockett are currently raising support to go to Ivory Coast, West Africa to serve as missionaries. Their goal is to have full support raised by the end of 2013. As they look at the ministries in Ivory Coast, they are excited and incredibly burdened. A recent civil war devastated the country and left the people shaken from fear but searching for answers.
Islam is rapidly gaining influence in this country under their newly elected Muslim president. The needs of this area are overwhelming but the opportunities for ministry are endless.
The Crocketts' first term goals will be teaching classes at the Baptist Theological Institute, running the Benjy Youth Center and children's ministries, and assisting some of the institute graduates in church planting in neighboring villages. Charlotte also hopes to use her experience as a nurse to reach out to abused women through education, counseling, and health clinics. Their prayer is that the Lord will use them to help spread the Gospel of hope to the people of Ivory Coast.
Grace Baptist Church is Luke's home church and the Crocketts' sending church. See how you can support Luke and Charlotte at their website, www.crockettstoafrica.com.
