Inspiring A Continent of Testimonies : Africa
Christians from 20 African countries have been mobilised to share their personal faith stories on Facebook as part of our #54stories campaign.
Our objective this year was to inspire people across the continent to tell people about Jesus by sharing their stories of God’s goodness and intervention on social media.
While this is a longer-term campaign, we have already seen Christians from 20 African countries share their personal stories on Facebook as videos. We have seen numerous contributions, from people sharing how they came to faith in Christ to stories of how God has provided, healed, or intervened. The most encouraging aspect of the campaign is seeing non-Christians engage with their friends through comments, asking questions about their faith and expressing their respect. We can’t wait to see how God will use this initiative in the future! You can see (and share!) some of the videos here.
