North West Africa

Nigerian Man, former Muslim, now Protestant Pastor in England, "16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity everyday" watch video (here)

From the North-West Africa Province of the Society of Jesus.

Talking about the Jesuits in Nigeria and Ghana brings out the hopes and dreams of the sons of Ignatius living and working in these two brother countries. These hopes and dreams include setting foot on the other countries that also constitute the province namely Sierra Leone, Liberia and Gambia.
We, Jesuits, are united by a goal to set the world on fire with Christ's love by their zeal for the souls of their brothers and sisters, especially in Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Gambia.
In line with Father Ignatius and his companions who sought to bring Christ's message of love, peace, and justice to the world by engaging in various ministries-education, catechesis, and fruitful conversations with the people they encountered- we, the Jesuits in Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Gambia, indigenous and expatriates, seek to achieve the magis in all our endeavours.
