When we arrive in Côte d’Ivoire, we plan to work with the Cuthbertsons for the first few months, after which we plan to begin evangelization and church planting in the region of Man. We plan to eventually start a youth camp and a literacy program to help with discipleship.
The region of Côte d’Ivoire that we plan to be serving in is called Man and is located in the northwest part of the country. In this part of the country, there is a mixture of different tribes, but the primary ethnic group is the Yacouba tribe. Many of the people speak the Yacouba language, but most of them speak French.
