...they live on the western edge of the Atlantic ocean, on the continent of Africa, a place far from McDonald's, Wal-Mart, and Starbucks!



...paved roads to MNK towns often look more like potholes surrounded by bits of asphalt than pavement!




... MNK areas remain isolated by natural barriers, such as rivers traversable only by ferry or small boat.



They live off the "paved" road, on dirt paths normally traveled only by bicycles, donkey carts, and feet, far from air-conditioned five star hotels.

From childhood, they have been taught to live in fear of unseen spirits, believing in the power of amulets to protect them from evil and harm. These amulets are worn by men, women and children. They have not heard the truth of God's love.

As they walked along, "beginning with Moses and all the Prophets Jesus explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself." Luke 24:27
