On this tour through a remote village in West Africa you will see the similarities in their daily lives, with yours at home. They make clothes, tend to the garden, and repair motorcycles. The greatest difference between you and this people group is that they have no access to the Gospel and desperately need someone to come and share with them. Will you come visit and share the truth with them?
There are still many in the world that have yet to hear the name of Jesus. In West Africa Chris and Anne Swanson (names changed) are apart of many that have said, “Yes” to the call to go to the hard to reach places. Their ministry is difficult and takes diligence and patience, but the souls of many are worth the moments of a few.
In the remote villages of West Africa there lies a heavy belief in Islam. The people are devout Muslims that believe their good works with earn them salvation. However, underlying their Islamic belief system is a tradition that has run through these people for generations. This is their African Traditional Religion in which they believe in spirit worship and witchcraft. These two religions do not go together, and provide even more confusion for these people who are lost and searching for truth.
