In Mali, Senegal and many other West African countries Christians are in the minority. 

Mosques continue to spring up everywhere, while Christians must gather to pray under trees or in simple shelters that barely protect them from the rain, wind and burning sun. 

Take Yasso in Mali, for example, where the parish of Saint Teresa of the Child Jesus numbers around 5,000 souls, yet their rickety wooden chapel can accommodate only 150. Now they are building a church for 2,000 people, but they don’t have enough money for the steel roofing sheets. 

Please help us help the parish build a fitting home for the Lord
