MKs Minister to Nearly 2,000

At Dakar Academy (DA) in Senegal, West Africa, student missionary kids (MKs) spent Thanksgiving weekend in remote villages, presenting the gospel in word and deed. Split into teams, MKs “were able to minister to more than 1,800 people through drama, children’s Bible clubs, a medical team, and evening evangelism campaigns,” said Evan Evans, dorm staff administrator and DA chaplain.  
A medical team, assisted by MKs, provided healing care to 260 people. Additionally, two churches were painted, roof trusses were built and placed, 23 benches were built, and an area was cleared and leveled and goals installed for a soccer field. “We initiated the soccer field with a game on Saturday afternoon between the DA boys and the village soccer team,” said Evans. “At half time, we were able to present the gospel. We left uniforms and two soccer balls for the village soccer team.” 
A couple of MK teams steadily filtered and hauled water to keep the group hydrated throughout the weekend. “You can imagine how much water a group of 120 people can go through in such a dry and dusty area,” Evans said.  
Although the students were met with some resistance in a few villages, they were able to present the gospel in six villages during the course of the weekend. “What a great opportunity for our MKs,” said Evans.
