Hello, we are Gabo and Ale. We were sent as missionaries by Horizon Church to Senegal in West Africa. We came to Senegal in April 2018, and we hope to be here many years Lord willing. However we plan to visit Costa Rica once every two or three years. We are part of FEDEMEC, a Costa Rican missions agency founded over 30 years ago. It has many missionaries around the world, and the vast majority are working in countries where Christianity is less than 2% of the population.
Senegal is a Muslim country with a population of 12 million people. It belongs to a French-speaking region and multiple ethnic languages. Many young people are coming to Christ every year. For that reason, discipleship is very important.
During the first year, we are focusing on learning the languages (French and Wolof), and getting to know the culture and the city. Our goal is to collaborate with different ministries in the area with discipleship and vocational training.
We are currently teaching theology at a small local Bible Institute, we are teaching English, Spanish and computer science.
About us: Gabo studied in Esepa Bible Seminary in Costa Rica, and has served in full time ministry since 2006 with different ministries. Ale is an Architect and has served several years in the worship ministry and youth ministry.
