Welcome to Senegal!

September 2, 2019

The 2019 - 2020 Senegal Young Adults in Global Mission have arrived in Senegal!  Welcome!


On Thursday, August 22nd, I was accompanied by my Senegalese Lutheran Development Services colleague, Yacinthe, and together, we met the five Senegal YAGM upon their arrival in Dakar.


We are currently in our second week of In-Country Orientation.  These intrepid young adults have been focusing on learning the local serer or wolof languages, figuring out how to navigate daily life tasks, making new friends, and learning about Senegalese cultural norms.


On Sunday, September 15th, they will travel to their new host communities, where they will be welcomed by their host families and new colleagues.


Please keep each of them in your prayers!
