Wolof of Senegal
The French expanded into Senegal during the 1800s, making it a colony of French West Africa. In 1946, the Wolof of Senegal were awarded French citizenship, and today, many Wolof have their homes in France. The Wolof follow a complex code of behavior that is based on their social status. Intermarriage among the three classes is a very rare occurrence.
The Wolof generally have not been open to the Christian Gospel. Pray this will change.
Christian believers living to the south of Senegal may have access to the Wolof. Pray they be given a heart to attempt this.
Pray for the few Christian believers among the Wolof, that they will grow in grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. Pray they will represent him faithfully.
Pray for the Wolof tribes of Senegal to have adequate health care, and to be able to care properly for their families.
