There are a lot of people in this axis, yet many of their villages have no churches, they are idol worshippers. There are efforts made from other states by sending Church Planters and Missionaries, yet the land is too vast for those few workers, and they also lack proper mentorship, education and financial support. All these challenges summed up to limit their efforts.
The preachers in this area needs a lot of educational and leadership skills. This will help them to train others who will in-turn go into the ripe fields to raise and train workers for God.
