WELCOME TO INTO-AFRICA
It has been said by many that West Africa is one of the most troubled places on earth. However, we at Into-Africa are seeking to change that perception.
The goals of Into-Africa are simple; to provide educational opportunities and scholarships for mission minded students both foreign and domestic. Another goal is to construct multi-purpose facilities that will serve as medical facilities, schools and churches. In turn, creating a healthy environment for children to grow and learn. This will impact future generations, strengthening their desire for democracy and their ability to attain it.

LIGHTHOUSE MEDICAL MISSIONS
The story of the Lighthouse Medical Mission Teams began in Arizona in 1988 in the heart of a young pastor named Alvin Smith. Sensing a call to minister to the people of Western Africa, Pastor Smith, with his wife Renee set out for Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa in September 1989. There he founded the Door Christian Fellowship Church and over the next decade built a vibrant and large congregation preaching the simple Gospel of repentance from sin and the need for salvation.
