CDI Central

Rev. Kouakou Prao

We have a mission in four zones with just over 100 churches and 3,500 members.  The work has continued to develop and we have a goal of 200 churches on each zone.  They have been waiting for the Jesus Film Equipment to plant churches but now we are looking for ways to start churches without the equipment.

The work has just begun under new leadership with Rev. Prao beginning as the new DS and developing new leaders. They have decided to have everyone give into the OWE and to raise their goals to 200,000 cfa this coming year.

CDI South

Rev. Djedje Yao Clement

We had 81 churches in the district in 2008 and one church in Guinea Conakry.  Today we have opened seven churches in the south and four churches in Guinea.  We now have three zones with leaders who are taking on the responsibilities to operate like mini- districts.

Each area has had mini assemblies with an emphasis in self development.  We have been working on each person in the district membership to give a minimum each month toward the growth of the church.  We are also using the training for AIDS awareness and potentially have medical clinics in each zonal area to help the people.

This year the women raised up funds and rented a vehicle to come to Ghana for the women’s convention.  They are maturing in their faith and have not relied on dependence on others.

There was a great camp for the youth and with special speakers from the Ghana district. It was a great collaboration and the impact has been positive.  Other training was in children ministry and finance this year as well.  We created a cloth material that is for the women’s ministry.  The cloth has the logo of the Church of the Nazarene in three languages; French, English, and Portuguese.  We are selling the material to raise funds for the women.  The material has been well accepted by our members and even other leaders across the Africa West Field.

We praise God for what he is doing across the country of Cote d’Ivoire.
