Serving God faithfully for 21 years!

Another Praise International pastor is Jean Serima KONE. He has been fulfilling his calling as pastor for over 21 years! He serves a church in the village of Banankabougou, located in the outskirts of Bamako, capital of Mali. His church has an attendance of about 160 people.

He and his wife, Marie, have 4 children : Adama, 17 years old, Samuel, 15, Josue, 12, and Esther, 7. Please pray for Pastor Kone’s family and for his ministry of evangelism and church planting, in a country where Muslims make up about 90% of the population.

Hundreds Come to Christ in Bamako

Pastor Christophe DEMBELE. our Praise Mali Country Leader, tells me that last week there was a big evangelistic crusade in Bamako, Mali.  The evangelist was Dr. Dag Heward-Mills of Ghana.  Over 50,000 attended.  Almost 3,000 accepted the Lord. Mills and his evangelistic team and organizers (including Pastor Christophe Dembele) were received by the President of Mali Amadou Toumani Touré in his presidential palace.  Pray for the new converts, for God’s protection upon them, that they would be discipled, grow in the Lord and stay firm.  Pray for all those who were touched in some way by the Gospel. Remember that Mali is approximately 90% Muslim.
