As many of our friends know, Wendy and I have completely fallen in love with Africa. We have given so much of our lives to that wonderful land. Sharing the Good News with its beautiful people. And now, we’re so excited to be returning in February to Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.

Not only will we serve together in eye glass clinics, soccer clinics, schools, and orphanages, we’ll also be blessed to have you with us at the festival, praying, counseling, and serving right along with us. It will be amazing! I can’t wait. 

The Lord has certainly gone before us. He may be paving the way for you to join us on this trip to Abidjan as well.

Please take a look, pray about it, and truly ask the Lord to guide you. We’re only making this available to a few handpicked friends. We so want you to experience this.

Remembering God’s promise in Deuteronomy 31:8 – “The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not be afraid or dismayed,” the Palau team has committed to serving in Africa every year. This year marks a decade since that commitment. A decade since God began using this team to bring a great harvest of new believers, year after year.

Andrew and Wendy have shared the dream of bringing dedicated teams of LPA friends with the team to serve more hurting people in Africa. We are better together. You are vital to seeing another year of people come to know Jesus.

The Palau team will help you find the right opportunity for your unique skills, provide the necessary training, and make all logistical arrangements for a safe and rewarding time of ministry.

  • FESTIVAL MINISTRY: All teams will have the opportunity to serve as counselors for new and recommitting believers as well as an opportunity to serve in the children’s area at the festival.
