A SAMPLE OF GOD’S WORD IN WOLOF
Recorded on location in Dakar, Senegal, “Naatalu Yeesu Krist,” meaning “Portraits of Jesus Christ” was recorded and co-produced by our Wolof Global team, led by Etienne Sene. Recording the Psalms in Wolof is essential because it provides a strategic approach for evangelism and discipleship among a majority Muslim practicing population in Dakar and Western Africa as a whole. The Psalms are respected and naturally artistic and facilitate provoking key questions about Jesus as seen in many of the Psalms and other passages like Isaiah 53. This translation would empower the Christian Church in Dakar, Senegal, a very influential metropolis to launch the Gospel more deeply into the Western African region.

WOLOF GLOBAL TEAM HIGHLIGHT
Team Leaders: Etienne & Jean Jacques
Streetlights’ work in Wolof will be a partnership between the Local Team in Chicago and the missional creatives in Dakar who are managed by our Team Leader Etienne Sene. We will collaborate and spend time recording and producing the Streetlights Audio Bible in Wolof, a language spoken by more than 10 million people in the region and by more than 95% of Senegal’s population, the overwhelming majority of whom are Muslim and do not have access to God’s Word. The opportunity we have is to fuel their creativity and passion to be a tool for evangelism and discipleship. The work of the Church in their urban context is multifaceted and complex, but the challenges of globalization may actually present an incredible opportunity for missions in the 21st century. Dakar and Chicago have much more in common today than they did a generation ago, and one likely conduit is music. Our prayer is that this crucial endeavor will help deliver God's heart clearly as we work together in the process.
