WELCOME TO Africa 1040

Thank you for your prayers and interest in our ministry in Senegal, West Africa.

Who We Are

Originally from Oklahoma, Shad and Amy began their full-time missionary life in 2016 and have since called Africa home.  Shad, a former EMT and licensed emergency and critical-care veterinarian, and Amy, a former Optometric assistant with a B.S. in Community Health,  now use their skills and education to serve the under-served in their community.

Our Work

We provide English-as-a-second-language (ESL) education, veterinary care, and community health training.  This allows us to show Christian love in tangible ways that meet people in their needs right where they are.  We also provide training for young missionary apprentices and local support for existing ex-pats.

Everyone Has a Story

I was a slave for 8 years. Now I'm developing my own business.

Meet Batsy. Batsy is one of the hardest workers we have ever met. His story is incredibly sad and inspirational at the same time. As he fought back tears, he explained to us that his parents, not having enough money, sold him into slavery when he was young. He grew up his entire childhood away from his family. For 8 years he was forced to beg on the streets and to bring back 500 cfa (the equivalent of 90 cents) each evening to his master before sundown. On the days that he failed to do this he would be seriously beaten.
