Pray for our Global ministry PARTNERS


Free Methodist nationals have begun a growing church planting movement in the wilderness area where Ebola broke out in 2014. Over the past two years, since Dearborn Free Methodist first partnered with Dosseh and Belley, churches have begun in more than 30 villages. Dearborn FMC is the sole funding source for this church planting program.

Pray for Guinean Pastor Belley and his wife Blonde who oversee the work in Guinea.
Pray for Pastor Dosseh (from Togo) who oversees the FM work in West Africa.
Pray for the church planters living in challenging conditions.
