How This Hospital Is Reaching West Africa With the Gospel

With more than 1,700 professions of faith in a year, God is using Hôpital Baptiste Biblique to reach Togo in incredible ways.

There’s a striking overlap between those who lack access to the gospel and those who lack access to healthcare.

That’s why medical missions is opening gospel doors in West Africa. Hôpital Baptiste Biblique (HBB), or Karolyn Kempton Memorial Christian Hospital, is a 40-bed, full-service hospital serving as a platform for ABWE missionaries since 1985.

In addition to the Togolese themselves, unreached people groups including the Kotokoli, Fulani, Zarmas, and Hausas are all within ministry distance of the hospital. Since the ministry’s founding, more than 50 churches have been planted as a result of discipleship relationships formed through healthcare, and more than 80 percent of the congregations are now in the hands of national pastors and leaders.
