Have you heard of the Wolof’s of Senegal in West Africa? How does Bible translation relate to the Wolof’s? The Wolofs’ main values are peace, hospitality, and self respect. They make up the majority of the population and are nearly 100 percent Muslim. Marilyn Escher joins us to share some fascinating insights on missions and Bible translation.
Marilyn Escher serves with World Venture and is the coordinator of the Wolof Bible translation project in Senegal. Her prayer? That God would use his Word to bring people to see that they need a Savior, and that Jesus, the Messiah, is the only Savior.
