January Mission Team to Senegal Forming Now!

26 09 2013

ImageWe are currently forming a mission team to Senegal for January 18-28, 2014 (Dates may change by 1-2 days depending on flight arrangements).  The team will have many roles, including:  medical, running classes in computer and English, retreat for girls, prayer walking, prison ministry …

The added benefit to this January date is that we will be participating in the grand opening ceremonies for the Boys Vocational School which we helped make a reality.

If you are interested in being a part of this team, let us know.

Septmeber Update

Girls' school

Throughout the past month or so, there have been several transitions that have been going on in Senegal.

 

Here’s what our new partner missionary, Becca, writes:  “The first few weeks in country have been plagued with many difficult situations including a house robbery, a minor car accident, many illnesses, major flooding and sewage problems, financial needs, first time separations from family members and major cultural adjustments.”

 

 Although there are struggles, the team is stronger than ever, willing to face anything to overcome this phase in their work.  These struggles have also brought the community closer, as neighbors are opening their doors and welcoming our teams into the community.

One man commented on the “wonderful work with the girl’s school” with which we partner.  He showed us two pictures of girls that had graduated and were now benefitting the community.  He said that they were changed young ladies who had been on the wrong path but were now on the right path.  The name of our school is Yoonu Njub, which means the Way of Righteousness.”

 

We are looking forward to what the future brings to our team, hoping and praying that they will be protected from what is heading their way next.

SSMN says “Welcome” to our new Social Media Intern, Emma.  Emma is a second year student at Stonehill College.  Her role is to keep you updated on what is happening in Senegal.  She will keep you informed about the missionaries and their activity in Saint Louis by including snippets from their news letters.  She’ll also keep you up to date on the projects that SSMN and SSCC are directly involved in and how the Yoonu Njup Center is impacting their community in Saint Louis, Senegal.  As we continue our involvement with the center through the medical clinic, girls school, boys vocational school, immunization programs and work with the Talibe boys; we are seeing physical, emotional and spiritual growth in this poor community. Thank you for your continued interest and support.  Together, we are making a difference!  

–John Littlefield, Executive Director, SSMN
