Listening Groups and Scripture Distribution in Senegalese languages
Author: Laurie Klaas (2021)

This report describes the Scripture Engagement training which was carried out in response to an invitation from Mercy Ships. Twelve local chaplains were trained to facilitate listening groups among the outpatients of Mercy Ship’s Hospital Out-Patient Extension Center (HOPE Center). They were also equipped to distribute Scripture resources in Senegalese languages among the outpatients and those receiving care on the ship using LightStream Pocket Wi-Fi media boxes.

A description of the training program and resources used is followed by lessons learned and changes that were made in the process. Included in the report are links to information about the devices and the documents that were used.

The report is available for download in both English and French.
