Dakar, Senegal

(dah-KAR) – A worker has been partnering with a Senegalese believer to train women in the fabrication of cleaning products that they can sell to make a profit. One of the women who’s been attending the workshops recently told the worker that she’d been praying to Allah for someone to come and help the women in her small town. Then one day, while at the market, she overheard the worker talking with the women who sell vegetables and fish there about organizing a training session to teach soapmaking plus other ideas to help women. Hearing that, she became convinced that this worker was sent by God to help the women in her community. Pray that this woman and the others, with whom friendships are developing, will understand that the worker wasn’t sent just to teach entrepreneurship, but to tell them about new life in Christ and new hope for living in communion with God. Pray that a women’s Bible study group will be started in February. “This makes Jesus the guarantor of a better covenant. . . . Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them” (Hebrews 7:22-25 ESV).
