Our Partners in Togo: 6DI
For a few years now, Clear and Simple Media (CSM) has been in partnership with the 6° Initiative. The 6° Initiative (6DI) is a ministry of Converge IM and is one of their major initiatives in Africa.
6DI is a church planting movement focusing on the unreached people groups just north of the equator in West Africa. This area spans the balmy African coast that Voodoo and the exportation of precious human life through the slave trade have dramatically impacted. 6DI is partnering with national leaders to plant churches in the least-reached cities of the region. A concentrated church planting movement within these culturally significant cities is a launching pad for ministry in smaller communities.
In addition to projects like Togo Church Planting, Benin Church Planting, Togo Palms Camp and Institute, Deaf Project, and Vocational Training, 6DI is partnered with other local missions to provide resources to help accomplish their shared goals.
For several years now, 6DI has been using the French translation of the Travel Guide to the Bible (Guide Biblique) to train believers. In a recent exchange with Josh Freeman, the 6DI Initiative Leader in Togo, he included this note:
Just to let you know, our pastors have been using and handing out Simple Truths (Vérité Simple) left and right. They are loving them, and it’s been a helpful resource.
That little book, Simple Truths for the New Believer, is now in 50 languages. God is using it in mission fields, Bible Schools, Seniors’ homes, addiction rehabilitation facilities, English as a Second Language classes, and university ministries.
We are thankful to hear stories like this one from Josh. But we hear only a few of those stories now. Someday, I hope that we will know them all. But whenever we hear these stories, we know two things. One: God receives all of the praise for how he is using these resources. Two: all of this is only possible because of the generosity of our partners.
