Hi, welcome to Steve and Esther's blog page. We've created this in hopes of staying in touch with everybody interested in our ministry to the Wolof people of Senegal. As time goes on, we'll be learning more and more about how to post to this page so you can get our news, see any videos and most of all pray.

The Wolof people are the dominate people group of the Senegambian Region of West Africa. They are 99% Muslim and most have never heard of the good news of Jesus. We desire to be a part of what God is doing in this region of the world and among the Wolof.

We've been serving in Senegal among the Wolof since February 1997 with SIM (Serving In Mission). We did Wolof language study in Thies, Senegal (which is now Senegal's second largest city) for the first 4 months of our time in Senegal. We then finished a house in Khombole, a small rural town that is almost completely Muslim. We were the first Christians to live in this town and the only witness for Jesus for at least a 20 mile radius.

Upon returning for our second term in Senegal, we were asked to serve as the field directors for SIM Senegal. We served as the field directors for 5 years. We are presently back in the US waiting on the Lord's provision for starting a new ministry among university students at the Chiekh Anta Diop University in Dakar, Senegal.

We are currently looking for prayer and financial support to enable us to return. Get in touch with us if you would like to help.
