Greetings from Senegal! We are so grateful for the great and

you for praying for the Mandinka people. We are in the capital,
Dakar, for a little longer. Richard went to South Africa
in January for some tests. He had a great report, but he still
is not permitted to go back to Sedhiou. We are very disappointed,
but God is Good. We are planning to stay in Dakar until the end
of the calendar year. We are continuing to look for Mandinka
speakers as we go about the city. The Urban team has started
some ministry opportunities at our company’s center. We
are helping with an English as a Second Language (ESL) class
a couple of nights a week. The majority of our students are Mandinka
speakers. Scripture is part of our curriculum. This is a lot
of fun and a great opportunity to build relationships and share
the Gospel. Please pray for these young people to hear English,
but even more for them to grasp just how much Christ loves them.
Our main contact with Sedhiou is via phone right now. We have
made phone contacts with some who were interested or made professions
of faith during the cataract surgery clinic. Please pray that
through SD and other Great Commission Christians they will be
discipled. Patrick and I plan to make a trip to Sedhiou soon
and hope to visit with as many people as we can.
It looks like this countries elections will have a second round.
That is supposed to happen around the third week in March. Please
pray for peace during this time. Thank you not growing weary of praying for the Mandinka people.
