Sheltered from the heat of the day in a house-tent, a mother and her young child entertain visitors in Mali, West Africa. Although Islam is the majority religion in Mali, the secular government is welcoming to Christian NGOs and the need for Bible translation is being increasingly supported by Malian churches. There are currently two Bible translation projects nearing completion – Dogon with approx 600,000 speakers and Songhay, Koyrabora Senni with 430, 000 speakers. Please pray that these communities eagerly accept the Good News!

Although a number of other translation projects are underway, 35 living languages in Mali still have no Scripture available. Mali is currently experiencing a food shortage after no rainy season in 2011 resulted in a very small harvest. Click here to see prayer request for Mali.
