Senegal: 1st Quarter, 2018

By Arnold Dzah

 

I lack words to describe the penetrating power of the radio program. God continues to break harder grounds through the radio programs here. We’ve now fully entered the university campus nearby where students call to ask pertinent questions. We receive  questions such as, “Why do we still follow Christ when he promised that somebody is coming after him? Should we listen to that person?” Your guess is as good as mine, since such a question can never be answered on the radio.

Though Islam is tolerant in Senegal, we don’t want to provoke them. We are mindful that the station may be closed down or we may be stopped from preaching. We asked the one who asked the question to visit us in order to discuss it together.

We have five university students attending the Bible school here in Dakar. We’re so grateful to God. I received a call from a village I can’t even find on the map (Domgor), where a gentleman introduced himself as a listener. He has told us that he is  not alone in listening to our programs, so he is inviting us to visit him. Additionally, if possible, we will organize an evangelism event for this next December. And if we can preach in their local language, Djola, many more will be interested.

We pray that we can be assisted to satisfy this request. This is not the first time we received such a request coming from the Djola-speaking people. They are another huge population in the southern part of Senegal.

We’re so grateful for all the support we receive from World Radio in support of our preaching programs. May God continue to bless you.
