Bill & Kathy Martin are partners with Converge Worldwide. They are currently serving in Dakar, Senegal.
We are asking God for 10% of the Dakar metro population to become Christ-followers, gathered into multiplying, culturally appropriate Kingdom communities.
The first part of the phrase is the most important, “We are asking God,” because this is something that can only happen through a tremendous outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The roots of the baobab tree represent the prayer support we need in order to see the vision accomplished in our generation. Currently, about 0.01% of the ~3 million people in the Dakar metro attend a church, and only 1 in 5 of those are Senegalese, so the challenge is great.
We are aspiring to do this by launching multiple disciple making movements in different subsets of the population, with a special focus on the least reached ethnic groups.
