SEGOU, MALI— Imagine growing up in the Western African country of Mali. Like the majority of people there, you were born into a Muslim family in a small rural village. You have poured out great energy to follow the Islamic spiritual path before you, but you find that all of your religious efforts only lead toward feelings of hopelessness and despair.

One day you happen to encounter a young man who says he is a disciple of Jesus. He invites you to a Discovery Bible Study where you begin to read the Bible and pray. You hear about grace and learn about Jesus. This news changes your life and completely delivers you from all of the mental and physical oppression which you were experiencing.

Now you feel called to tell others about this Jesus you follow and today are reaching out to others with the good news of the Gospel kingdom. This is one of many true stories told by Dr. Bourama Sidibe, Luke Society ministry director in Segou, Mali.

Dr. Sidibe has a growing medical clinic which sees more than 2,000 patients annually, as well as provides health education and prenatal education to hundreds more. One of the more spiritually impactful facets of Dr. Sidibe’s ministry are Discovery Bible Studies which are set up to allow Muslims to read the Bible and ask questions in a non-threatening way. These Bible studies continue to bring many Muslims to faith in Christ.

Please pray for the bold evangelism of Dr. Sidibe and his team as they encounter resistance and danger because of their Christian faith. Pray for the Holy Spirit to continue to move in many lives as people discover the grace and truth of Jesus.
