The Sereer: Desperately Trying to Please God

The people of the Sereer tribe hold fast to the pillars of Islam. They pray five times a day, they fast, they give to the poor. It seems they so desperately want to please God, but they don’t know God because they don’t know the truth about who Jesus is. Missionaries Alton and Barbara Lanier have invested themselves in the lives of the Sereer; building relationships and becoming like family to them. Incredibly, in one village they have even been given permission by the chief’s eldest son to teach Christ to the children in the schools. A door to these hearts, hungry for truth has been flung wide open. But it is unclear how long this door will remain open.
