The Salvation Army will soon be present in 124 countries!
Effective April 1, we’ll be officially working in the West African country of Togo.
In years past, residents of the country and Togolese citizens living in Canada and the US asked Salvation Army International Headquarters to establish work in Togo. In effect, our Ghana Territory sent a fact-finding team to the country.
They were enthusiastically welcomed by established churches and community leaders alike. It turns out that Salvation Army meetings were already being held there. Work among children and young people is also developing well.
Captains Hervé Michel and Naty Dorcas Ahouyanganga, from The Salvation Army in Congo, have been appointed as leaders for our work in Togo.
