Five Sets of Resources for French-Speaking African Christians
The Need is Great! ...
“I want to thank you again for the Leadership
Pack. Each book is for us a great comfort.
This week I am in the process of reading
Stephen Lungu’s book.” (Jacques Luwaku,
pastor in the Democratic Republic of the
Christian leaders in Francophone Africa have
very limited access to any written resources.
They confirm in their letters that each book
offered to these servants of God is like gold
During the second “Forum of Evangelists”
in West Africa, BLF offered a mini-pack
of books to fifteen new mentors of young
evangelists. Key pastors have received
“leadership packs” during training seminars.
Churches, pastors, evangelists and future
leaders all need Christian literature in French.
Lessons we have learned during previous
distributions have helped BLF refine the
scope of each project. Our valuable partnerships
in Africa and Haiti offer innumerable
opportunities for distribution of appropriate
resources to carefully chosen change agents,
with opportunities for follow-up.
Goals of the Book Packs Project
With our partners, BLF will:
• Provide quality French Christian literature
to believers and ministers of God.
• Reach regions that have a particularly
urgent need for resources, including Africa,
Haiti and Madagascar, with other French speaking
countries to be considered in the
• Ensure that these packs and other free
literature will be provided to people and
churches that BLF team members or their
partners know personally. This personal
touch will allow us to know the recipients
and provide excellent accountability and
• Distribute literature primarily within BLF
International’s existing sphere of influence,
with priority given to existing projects.
Book Packs Project Partners
Our sister missions, Forum of Evangelists
and several European publishers, are partnering
with BLF Europe to create and execute
the Five Africa Packs project. Forum of
Evangelists will recommend, coordinate and
evaluate the couriers who will carry to Africa
the books provided by the publishing houses.
BLF International has gathered five collections
of books, produced in French by BLF
Europe and other European publishers. These
“Packs” are designed to be given to specific categories of leaders in Francophone Africa.
Church Pack - This pack is
intended to be a mini library of
foundational teaching for churches
so that the greatest number of
Christians may benefit from them.
Pastor Pack - This pack is a small
selection of resource books for
pastors and church leaders.
Evangelist 1 Pack and Evangelist
2 Pack - The packs for evangelists
will be distributed through the
ministry of Forum of Evangelists
(FDE) in Francophone countries. FDE
holds international events organized in the
Francophone areas for the encouragement
and multiplication of envangelists. FDE
exists in Europe (Belgium, Switzerland,
France), Canada and Africa. The first FDE
of West Africa was organized in 2011 with
60 participants from six different countries.
A second one was held in May 2012 with
300 participants. The Democratic Republic
of Congo will be the new FDE location for
Mentor Pack - One of the values
of the Forum of Evangelists is to
participate in the multiplication of
evangelists. In order to attain this
goal, a workshop was organized on mentoring
at each FDE. Following the workshop,
communities of mentors were established—
those who invest themselves in the multiplying
of leaders and evangelists. This project
of creating mentoring communities was
developed in partnership with Leighton Ford
Ministries (LFM) and FDE International.
An Invitation to you - to partner in the
Book Packs Project
What an opportunity! We ask for your diligent prayer - that each recipient
will use these books for maximum impact. Our African pastor partners are SO
thankful for these book packets. (Check out our video online:
African Pastors Testimony - a great short testimony of praise).
We invite you to become a partner with your
financial gifts. God is so good to us - we can
so easily get any kind of Christian themed
books here in the USA. But that is not true
in African French speaking countries. Please
pray and give of your resources as God
would guide you.
The Need is Great!
