Bible Dedication Marks 80-plus Years of Dogon Ministry

By the Alliance Field Director, Mali, West Africa

Alliance missionaries brought the good news to the Dogon, a tribal people in Mali bound by ancestor and spirit worship, in 1931. Thanks to the ongoing, faithful giving of Alliance people to the Great Commission Fund, today, there are an estimated 15,000 Dogon believers.

Many of these believers were present on January 28, 2012, when 5,000 gathered in the village of Sangha (the historic center of the Dogon Alliance Church) to celebrate the culmination of decades of work—the translation of the Bible into their heart language.
