Early Election Results Point to a "Runoff" in March

Thank you for your prayers this past weekend for God to be glorified in the national election process in Senegal and the outcome.  Unofficial results from Senegal's presidential election suggest a tight race between incumbent Abdoulaye Wade and former Primer Minister Macky Sall. Here's a link to a BBC article from this morning.

The results will not be finalized until Friday, March 2 at the latest. The initial feedback appears that  the democratic system in Senegal worked and many people came out to vote. Here's a link to many pictures that show people voting in large numbers in cities, small towns, and rural villages. Please continue to pray for God's will to be done and for physical and spiritual protection for the church in Senegal.
