Beautiful Relationships & Counting Down

Blake & Kristen Harwood



Our team has witnessed God's work in Togo in extraordinary ways this past month. Currently, there are over 20 pastors in discipleship training and house churches evolving throughout Aneho. These local pastors are studying topics that include making disciples, planting churches, and assurance of salvation. We are asking God for a Gospel movement there and are seeing fruits of the labor as disciples are made and people's lives are changed for eternity.

For those of us that are still in the states, but hoping to move to Togo soon, we had a chance to all get together in January. Getting to spend time with them when we were in Florida a few weeks ago allowed us to deepen our relationship with one another. Soon we'll all be working together in Togo and our relationships are vital. Please be praying for that.


Personally, this past month has held incredible events for the two of us between the places we've been and people we've gotten to spend time with. During recent travels including attendance at a conference we were able to meet incredible church planters and ministry leaders, people who we look forward to staying in touch with and who can be of great encouragement. It was such a joy to share dinner with new friends over a few occasions. Welcoming others into your life and providing for their needs physically, mentally, or spiritually is such a beautiful act.

It's a great desire of ours to spend our time well as we prepare to move overseas. Thank you for being a part of our lives as we seek to be a part of life with Togolese. We are so close to moving to Togo with the help of our partners. Right now, we have 92% of our partnerships fulfilled! Our hope is that we can land in Togo in the coming weeks before Spring officially begins here in NC. Will you pray with us for the remaining partnerships?


Better Together,
Blake & Kristen Harwood
