Southern Baptist Convention

Philip & Jummai Nache

MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA

In recent years, people from around the world have been coming to the United States to live. The nations are coming to us!

Today in our prayer time, we will pray for two of our missionaries who are responding to this.

Philip Nache came from Nigeria, Africa, to the United States to attend seminary. When he visited Minneapolis-St. Paul in Minnesota, he realized many Africans were there - more than 100,000 immigrants and refugees. But there were few churches for them. "They were like a sheep without a shepherd," he said.

So Philip and his wife, Jummai, moved to the Twin Cities in 2015 and planted Hope of Nations Gospel Church. Of course Africa has many nations and language groups. Africans asked him to plant a church for their groups.

So Phillip started teaching classes that trained Africans in how to plant churches. One man he trained returned to South Sudan to plant churches - home and overseas missions!

Our church is supporting Philip and Jummai in Minnesota through our Cooperative Program giving. This is how we impact lives with the gospel in Minnesota and countries around the world as well.

Let's pray for our missionaries now.
