ONE OF THE FASTEST-GROWING CITIES IN WEST AFRICA
Tamale is the capital of the northern region of Ghana. It is said to be the 3rd largest city in the country (after Accra and Kumasi) and one of the fastest-growing cities in West Africa.
It is situated at the junction of three ancient trade routes. From its early days it quickly developed into a trade centre for commodities like salt. Even today, the central market and the palace of the regional king mark the inspection of these ancient roads. Meanwhile, the city has spread far into the surrounding areas and has been growing rapidly in recent years. Today you will find traditional adobe structures next to modern office buildings, hotels and shops. A recent addition is the Tamale Stadium, purpose built for football.
Due to its central location, Tamale is a hub for politics and economy in northern Ghana today. A number of international organisations and companies have branches here.
In January 1987, exactly 30 years ago, CfaN held a Great Gospel Campaign here. It was an amazing event that influenced the whole region greatly. It is very possible that we will meet people who remember it or actually attended.
In the meantime, a new generation has grown up in Tamale and they also need to hear the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We are looking forward to this Campaign, please stand with us in prayer for the region, for salvations and for the team.
Our team is currently on the road with our technical equipment having to cover thousands of miles and often camping next to the side of the road. Please pray for a safe journey.
