JacobO and I met with a family originally from our church, Jonathan and Kari (and Alec!) who have been living in Senegal since January of this year. They met when they were working in Senegal several years ago. After they were married, Jonathan finished osteopathic training in France last year and Kari is a media consultant. Their son Alec was born last August.
We also met with a neurosurgeon from Chad who is living in Senegal and doing ministry through a hospital, a long-time local believer who has helped with numerous short-term teams, a local believer who has worked in women’s prison ministry for almost twenty years, some people setting up a Christian community center, and some men setting up a business consulting firm, and a children’s care center. There are only a few hundred believers, but much activity!
Next year we will send a team or two from our church to Senegal. Let’s continue to pray for the people of Senegal and the establishment and growth of the church.
