After my 8th trip to Senegal, I learned about an opportunity to partner with a missions organization called UWM and work with MIS. MIS is a Senegalese-based local ministry that focuses on planting churches and equipping leaders throughout the villages in the area. MIS has short term teams come in and partner with and encourage the believers in these villages. During my two month internship I hope to be utilized the most, assisting with the logistics for the Adopt A Village Program through MIS. This program connects US churches to specific villages where churches are being planted, providing encouragement and support, and empowering leaders to reach the people in their villages. I will be working in their office, assisting with the daily tasks, and supporting the short term teams, during their time in Senegal. I will help bridge the gap between the various partners in ministry.

Prayer Requests:

  • The growth of MIS and the churches in Senegal.
  • Provision of Financial Support to get me to Senegal in January.
  • The MIS team in Senegal, as they continue to navigate ministry and COVID.
