Just read the linked article where it says "Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe on Wednesday signed a decree to set the election date on Feb. 28." Please pray for a peaceful election. The Africa Mercy plans to arrive in Togo mid-February and our advance team is there now preparing for the field service and the ship's arrival.
There is loads to accomplish prior to the ship's arrival and it is difficult as the focus of the nation is the election process. The Togo government officials came to visit the ship while we were in Benin and they are looking forward to the ship coming to Togo to help their people. Thanks for your prayers for the elections in Togo and for our advance team!
