AFRICA: The Gambia
The Gambia 28-Day: Medical/Drama Ministry
Hot, dusty villages. Children laughing and running everywhere. Women setting up rickety tables as they prepare to sell their wares. Doctors, nurses and students working side by side to serve and to bless. You’ve made your way to The Gambia, Africa.
Africa is called the Dark Continent, not because of the color of the people’s skin but because of the lack of hope in their eyes. Locked into black magic, witch-doctor traditions and economic depression, they share a hopelessness only Jesus can overcome.
The Gambia is a predominantly Muslim country, and both of these frontier mission trips are spiritually intense. You’ll use your gifts and talents as you proclaim Him in seaports, markets and remote villages.
For many of those we serve, this will be their first experience with a real doctor. Most of their medical care comes from the village marabou (a witch doctor who adheres to a mixture of Islamic and traditional African beliefs.) As God directs, the 28-day team will also have the opportunity to proclaim him through the “Freedom” drama.
God is calling many to proclaim Him in this Dark Continent. The real question is not who will go. Instead, you must ask yourself, “Why not me?” Why would it not be me whom God calls to push back the darkness in areas that have never experienced light?
Will you proclaim Him in the Gambia?
