Languages - Linguistics

Over 70 percent of the world's least reached people are part of oral tradition cultures, groups that use stories, songs and other forms of narrative to communicate their most significant messages. These cultures do not pass on information in our Western literate forms so we bring them the message of the Bible in a form they can understand and pass on to others, storytelling. Placements in this track are focused on either using the method of story and/or linguistics to effectively share the gospel.

Like an exquisite sandcastle formed in a harsh desert landscape, Mali is blessed by an extraordinary amount of beauty, wonders, talents and knowledge. Most of the country lies in the southern Sahara Desert, which produces an extremely hot, dust-laden environment, making Mali one of the hottest countries in the inhabited earth.
