Originally invited by 400 local churches, international evangelist Andrew Palau (son of Luis Palau) first focused his attention on the city of Yamoussoukro last year, where most of the church partners were based. But the vision quickly grew as more churches joined in the effort – expanding into the cities of San Pedro and now Abidjan. With the number of partnering churches now at 2,000, this ongoing campaign has proven to be one of the largest evangelistic efforts the nation has ever seen.
This coming week the Love Côte d’Ivoire campaign will culminate in a three-day festival (February 15-17) in the capital city of Abidjan (population: 5 million). The crowd is expected to reach into the tens of thousands.
The festival will feature performances by top-rated gospel artists and communicators including local favorites Emmanuel Bouaffo, Lilly Gohilou, Kone Fonaly, Mary Sy, and Richard Kreme, as well as well-known musicians Dave Lubben and Don Moen from the United States. It will also include BMX stunt demonstrations by ministry partners Stunt Dudes, entertainment for children and families with the help of close ministry partner Duggie Dug Dug, and proclamations of hope and good news from Andrew Palau.
