Isaiah 5:20-21, NET
Those who call evil good and good evil are as good as dead, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter. Those who think they are wise are as good as dead, those who think they possess understanding.

Pray for a healthy fear of the One True God among Muslims and believers alike in West Africa.

Through eventual contact with SIM International, Adama received further training. In 1990 he went on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ (now called CRU) and served with them for a decade, utilizing the impact of the JESUS Film. In 2000, he started his own organization that targets Muslim leaders throughout West Africa. Adama comments, “They are the custodians of the community of Islam, and only a few Christians are willing to bring the gospel to them.”
Adama and his team developed relational connections with Muslim scholars slowly and privately. It may take months of meetings before an Islamic scholar will discover the truth. “We met with a Shi’ite leader in one location for a year,” he says. After Islamic services on Friday, this Muslim leader would drive several hours to spend the weekend with Adama.
This imam actually stayed in the mosque, but his message changed dramatically as a follower of Christ. The man’s changed perspective did not go unnoticed. “They sent him to a psychiatric hospital. They said he was mad,” Adama said. After his release from the psychiatric facility, Adama urged him to escape. “We don’t know where he is today. Quite a few of the leaders who converted have died.”

Pray for the Holy Spirit to pierce the hearts of Islamic leaders in West Africa in such a way that they will teach the grace, mercy, and salvation of Jesus.
