I am so excited to share a wonderful opportunity with you. This February, I’ll be heading to Senegal, West Africa with a group from Calvary Fellowship Church. I am still in the process of raising enough funds to be able to attend this trip.
In 2005, CFC adopted the village of Babak. There are approximately 1500 people who live in this village. We have been blessed to assist prayerfully and financially with various projects in the past 8 years. Babak now has 10 public fresh water faucets and 40 private faucets throughout the village which have dramatically improved the health and quality of life within the village.
Other projects have included the provision of a grain mill, a fence around the village school, the construction of a library, funds to purchase grain for the village in response to a severe food shortage and most recently 1600 mosquito bed nets for three villages to defend against malaria. We have also been sponsoring 24 children from the village of Babak for the past three years.
This year’s trip will focus in a number of areas…
- Teaching and discipleship training with the men and women in the villages.
- Time spent with our 24 sponsored children in Babak.
- Relationship building throughout Babak and a few surrounding villages.
- Bless and encourage the Mission Inter Senegal staff.
To help address the food shortage across West Africa our team is also raising money to help provide rice for the 3000 people living in the village of Babak. $20 would provide a 50 pound bag of rice that could feed a family.
