Peoples of N Guinea-Bissau, SW Senegal, W Gambia

Several years ago, a volunteer team from a church in the United States was evangelizing among the Harvester People in West Africa. A young man gave his life to Christ and was baptized even though he knew that he would face opposition from his village. He is now working in a city 1-1/2 hours away but comes home weekly to worship with two other men who have come to follow Christ. The evil one continues to try to lure him away from Christ, and although this young man has sometimes fallen to temptation, he continues to be a devoted follower of Christ. Pray that he will faithfully follow Christ and be an example to others in the village who are scared to commit their lives to Christ.
