Horse-Cart Evangelism

In Dakar, Senegal, horse carts have been used to haul supplies throughout the city but not to carry the gospel-until now. “We hired a bunch of horse-cart drivers at Christmastime to give rides to a number of families desiring to go caroling,” said C&MA missionary Evan Evans. The horses’ necks were decked with jingle bells, and the carolers, who had learned some Christmas songs in Wolof, the local language, sang their way through neighborhoods.  
“At each house,” said Evans, “a Christian Senegalese woman explained why we were singing to them. We passed out cassette tapes that explained the way of salvation.”  
Ninety-eight percent of the Senegalese people practice the country’s traditional religion, making it “hard to break the spiritual ground here,” said Evans. But as a result of his horse-cart evangelism, an eighteen-year-old woman, who listened to the cassette tape left by a group of carolers, accepted Christ as her Savior. 
How can they hear without someone preaching to them? (Romans 10:14).
