Victory in Persecution
After teaching on the Secrets of the Vine from John 15 in the last two months, the Lord puts it in my heart to teach on The Persecution of the Church. Why this topic? During this present worldly pandemic, I have noticed that many of our fellow saints [and] church leaders are drifting away from the true faith instead of staying attached to this faith till death do us apart. I started at [a church] on Sunday May 02... The teachings were so clear that the Holy Spirit moved 20 hearts for repentance and engagements after the call with eyes opened. Glory be to God!Pastor Joseph Akakpo
Throughout the Months of May and June, Pastor Joseph has been faithfully obeying the Holy Spirit's leading to teach and preach on staying strong through persecution. He's seen so much fruit from his efforts and has even seen a pastor experience victory in persecution from the village leaders during a very intense moment.
Remember the word that I said to you: 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.John 15:20
In addition to teaching seminars about staying steadfast through persecution, Pastor Joseph, his wife, and team also led multiple evangelistic events for youth and pastors and leaders. God is working in Togo and he's using Pastor Joseph! Join us in praying for him as he serves.
