First Love International in Senegal
First Love provides administrative staff and teachers to Dakar Academy in Senegal.
Dakar Academy has students from over 30 countries. The student body is made up of missionary kids, expat kids, and Senegalese kids.
First Love staff currently teach 2nd grade and middle school (ages 11-14) Bible at Dakar Academy. Over 6th and 7th grade, they cover the whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. 8th grade focuses on the life and ministry of Jesus in the gospels. First Love is also involved in other activities like leading the senior guys’ small group.
First Love staff is currently learning Wolof, the most common language spoken in Senegal. Wolof is a West African language that is found primarily in Senegal and the Gambia.
The goal is to learn Wolof in order to share the gospel with Senegalese people. Among the Wolof people, for instance, it is estimated that 1 in 10,000 are Christian.
Biggest Current Needs
The greatest need in Senegal is the spread of the gospel. There are few Christians and even fewer churches, especially in local languages. Even though I live in the capital of Dakar, I am not able to find a nearby evangelical church that is primarily in Wolof. Please pray for the gospel to spread, churches to be planted, and God to be glorified.
