We as a team are focused on a people group living both in the city and in rural areas. Currently there are not yet any Communities of Faith (COF) in Jesus among them. Our vision is to see numerous COF worshiping the Lord. We build relationships as we serve among these people, showing love and sharing Jesus in word and deed.
There are opportunities for doing business in this area. There is a need to survey and look for good business opportunities and then go through the process of opening the business. By doing this there will be opportunities to live in the area, share Jesus, provide job opportunities for the local people and also potentially providing employment for others who do not have skills in business but could work in the business with you.
We live in a busy, vibrant city of just under one million people. There are numerous vehicles and motorcycles buzzing around the city. The housing ranges from simple wooden shacks to massive mansions. It is very hot and humid and rainy season brings relief for a few months of the year. This serves as a base to then serve in the nearby rural communities.
The area includes a significant population of those who claim to be Muslims.
