Senegal Outreach “Most Fruitful Ever!”

By Evan and Jewel Evans, serving in Senegal, West Africa

The Evanses are chaplains and dorm administrators at Dakar Academy, Senegal, West Africa, “a college preparatory, co-educational boarding and day school program primarily for missionary children.” They additionally oversee outreach programs and discipleship ministries for the school. The following is an adapted excerpt from their report about the school’s recent outreach weekend (November 26-28) in Senegal’s Tataguine region.

Thank you for praying! We are happy to report that this was the most fruitful evangelism weekend that we’ve ever experienced! More than 3,000 people heard the gospel in Tataguine, and 735 prayed to accept Jesus! God went WAY above all that we could have asked or imagined!


  • 8 sacks of peanuts harvested
  • 18 bundles of millet pounded into grain
  • Foundation poured for the new church building (mixing more than 19 tons of cement)
  • 1,200 bricks made by hand, using 8 tons of cement mixture
  • 15 benches and 4 stools built
  • Vacation Bible School conducted in 10 villages
  • Drama team gospel presentations in 13 villages
  • Medical team cared for 372 people
  • 1,200 liters of water hand-pumped
  • Ministry in 6 villages during the evening evangelistic campaigns

“To God Be the Glory!”

What a thrill it was on Sunday morning to worship with 100 believers in the church we had built during last year’s evangelistic outreach and to hear the pastor praise God for what He is doing in the Tataguine area. With our group, more than 250 people were packed into the church—just 24 X 36 feet in size!

Please pray for the extensive follow-up to be conducted by the national Senegalese pastors who have a list of names of people who prayed for their salvation.
