UPg for this episode:
The Wolof of Senegal
The Wolof, with a population of 5.5 million, are a West Atlantic people related to the Fulani, inhabting the Senegambian region (between the Senegal and Gambia rivers). They make up about 42% of Senegal's population and their main religion is Islam.
• Praise God for the completion of the Wolof New Testament in 1987, the release of which corresponded to a dramatic increase of believers. PRAY for its continued distribution in every Wolof community.
• There is a sense among missionaries that a large breakthrough among them Wolof is on the horizon. PRAY for continued openness among the Wolof and for wisdom among missionary teams about how to partner with one another to bring in the harvest.
• The coming of Islam has resulted in a reduced status of women among the Wolof. PRAY that they may know the One in whom there is no "Jew or Greek, male or female."
Every year 49,000 Wolof die without Christ, many of whom never hear the gospel in their lifetime.
