Communities where He is least known
There are about five million Wolof in Senegal, and their influence is felt nationwide. However, only about 200 follow Jesus among the Senegalese Wolof population, while the rest follow Islam, most commonly a form of folk Islam.
There is a saying in Senegal that to be Wolof is to be Muslim. So, those who have decided to follow Christ face persecution. At times this is physical, but it is regularly social when they are excluded from their communities.
Pray for SIM’s efforts to bring the gospel to the Wolof and to disciple those who show interest in Christianity. We attempt to help them understand sin and how Jesus brings hope and healing to this problem.
Pray for many Wolof adults and children to come to believe in Jesus and for strong Wolof churches to grow. Many are attracted to the gospel but find the idea of leaving their religion to be overwhelming.
Pray for Wolof Christians to persevere and witness, so that their faithfulness to Christ may point many others to Him.
Pray for the Lord to give the SIM Senegal team wisdom and to bless and use each ministry of our team.
Pray for God to answer prayers for both physical and spiritual healing among the Wolof.
