Come be a part of a unique opportunity to take the gospel to students and village people in a part of West Africa little touched by the truth of Christ. A coastal people, the Senegalese will welcome us to their country with warm hospitality, despite their poverty. Religion imported from the Middle East and former European colonization each left their imprints on Senegal, creating both huge need and tremendous opportunity. While most young people speak French as well as their local dialects, many also speak English and want to practice to aid them in their university pursuits. A recent survey of university students, business executives, and various people we met around town showed that 90 percent would like to meet with someone to talk about Jesus. We plan to take opportunities to share our faith personally, as well as show the JESUS film, and then meet with people afterward to discuss the claims of Christ.
As we are addressing spiritual needs, we will also be sharing our love for Christ by reaching out to those with basic/urgent medical needs at a university and village. Because of this we are seeking those that would be willing to join an in-country medical team to provide basic/urgent medical care. If you are a doctor, nurse, or medical assistant, here is a way you can share God’s love in a tangible way. If you do not have a medical background, you can still be a vital part of the team. Basic medical/urgent care and film showings, as well as evangelistic activities, require a strong team with your particular skills.
Our efforts will help reach Senegalese people of influence who will reach the nation in the years to come.
Senegal has been called “Africa for Beginners” because of its friendly people and developed infrastructure. If you ever wanted to visit Africa, now is the time!
