The Story

LifeSpring Foursquare Church, Ridgecrest California has been invited to partner with Foursquare Life Church, Richmond Virginia in their ongoing efforts to spread the Gospel Message in the Republic of Niger Africa. In just over four years, Foursquare Life has helped to establish over 100 local leaders and churches.

This first trip (for LifeSpring) will be for leadership to catch the vision and begin the partnership of the ministry already established. We are praying to send workers into the field on a regular schedule throughout the year. Foursquare is working to establish a national council in Niger. The purpose of these trips will be building relationships and discipling leaders who will be reaching the nation of Niger. We will also be evangelizing new areas of unreached people groups. This is a unique opportunity to reach a predominately Muslim and unreached people group within the 10/40 window. Niger is an open door to a closed world.

The majority of the population in Niger is under 25 years old, giving us the opportunity to invest in the next generation with the Gospel Message. With a population of 19,245,344 (July 2017 est.) the age structure is as follows:

  • 0-14 years: 49.01% (male 4,757,806/female 4,674,437)
  • 15-24 years: 19.1% (male 1,815,689/female 1,860,230)
  • 25-54 years: 25.97% (male 2,495,927/female 2,501,362)
  • 55-64 years: 3.28% (male 328,082/female 304,030)
  • 65 years and over: 2.64% (male 259,046/female 248,735) (2017 est.)

    As Jesus said in John 4:35, “Don’t you say, ‘There are still four more months, then comes the harvest’? Listen to what I’m telling you: Open your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ready for harvest.” (HCSB emphasis added)

    Niger is ready for the harvest!

    Will you help send the workers?

    “Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” Matthew 9:38
