Many people have never heard of the nation of Senegal, and most people who have only know it as being home to the famous Dakar Rally. (Which sadly moved to South America in 2009) - however its an unique nation in West Africa and has an particularly interesting slant on seeing the gospel.
We have all been in the position when someone offered us a tray of goodies. We look down at all the cakes and slices and notice one that is slightly larger than the rest and that is the one we want.
We have all heard that semi famous bible verse from Psalms 14:1 which says "The fool says in his heart, there is no God." And driving around various places you will see terrible stickers on the cars of professing Christian believers making jokes about atheists being fools and quoting this scripture.
However, I have come to see, that not all atheists are fools based upon the definition of this scripture, and some bible believing people ARE.
The World has many interesting religions and you can spend a lifetime studying them and comparing and contrasting. However here is something interesting to consider about the founders of some of the major religions in the world.
Earlier this year I was pondering my family and how to get my children to have a love for the gospel and missions like I do myself. I realised that just telling them it's important was never going to work, and I needed to change something in my life so that they would "catch it" from me. That was when I decided as part of our evening prayers every night, that we would pray for one nation in the world, and gradually over the course of a year pray for every country.
It was Sir Winston Churchhill who visited Uganda and called it the Pearl of Africa. Of course when I visited Uganda in July this year I didn't know that and I wondered why it was called that. After talking with our very kind African hosts they told me that Sir Winston had visited many African nations and that this one boasted wonderful crops, good rain, was very plentiful and green and stood out to him above the other nations he had visited. I'm not sure if that was true or not, but my time there came to inspire me greatly also because of a few other things I realised.
What happens now that I've adjusted it to be plaintext but with promoting off and commenting on.
