Dakar, Senegal

(dah-KAR) – A worker is hoping to teach a young Muslim widow about Jesus and God’s plan of redemption through Him. The widow has some basic knowledge of English and hopes to improve her knowledge and ability in the language. The widow asked the worker for a book in English. “The Bible Promise Book” was offered, but because the title on the cover included the word “Bible,” she said that she couldn’t accept that book. “I have six children! What would they think if they saw that book in the house, or me reading it! They would be confused.” Please pray that this attitude of rejection will soften and change as they work together on language in the coming weeks and months. Pray that her heart will open to hear the Word of life that her family needs so very much! “But of Israel he says, ‘All day long I have held out my hands to a disobedient and contrary people'” (Romans 10:21 ESV). “For ‘everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved'” (Romans 10:13 ESV). Pray that this widow will someday call upon the name of the Lord and be saved!
