Who we are:  Amet and Alexia FALL

 Where we serve:  Senegal, West Africa.  Senegal is a Muslim country, with a population of approximately fifteen million people, 95 % of whom claim Islam as their religion, 4 % claim Catholicism, and less than 1 % claim Evangelical Christianity as their religion.  Many Muslims, as well as Catholics, and those who do not claim either as their religion practice Animism (the fear of spirits, and witchcraft).

 Name of our local Senegalese Organization: “Kaddu Gu Sell Gi” (www.kaddugusellgi.com)

 Vision Statement:  To see God’s Church in Senegal grow in size and maturity with a healthy understanding of God’s Word and its application in daily life.

Purpose Statement:  To intentionally share and spread the Gospel in a clear and concise manner by using the following means: Radio, SD-Cards, Website, Video Testimonies and Teachings, Follow-Up Visits, Bible Classes, and other Training.

Brief History:

Amet grew up in the suburbs of Dakar, the Capital City of the country Senegal.  He grew up in a Muslim home and came to the Lord in 1980 at the young age of 17.  In 1983 he entered the Institut Biblique du Senegal and was anointed as Pastor in 1986.  He has since served the Lord in various ministries, including working with the Evangelism Team with YWAM, serving on the Doulos Ship (a floating Evangelical Library moving from country to country sharing the Gospel), Pastor in the Capital City of Dakar overseeing Evangelism and wHolistic Ministry Programs, Director of Mission Organization which ran a Christian Orphanage.  It was during this time in early 2005 when Amet met his wife, Alexia.

Alexia grew up in California, and came to the Lord on November 1995, at a much older age.  She began serving in the church in Sunday school and began exploring Short Term mission trip in 1997, confirming her calling to missions.  In 2003 Alexia was appointed with her young daughter to serve in Senegal, and on January 5, 2005, Alexia and her daughter Natalya arrived in Dakar to begin their life in West Africa serving the Lord.

Shortly after their arrival, Amet and Alexia met, but they began to know each other and respect each other later in that year when Senegal had intense rains after a 30-year drought causing extensive flooding throughout the Capital City of Dakar (this was the storm that sent Hurricane Katrina to the US).  Together, they served on a committee leading and mobilizing the national church and mission organizations in a movement of Flood Relief for six months, serving the population of the Banlieue (slums/suburbs) of Dakar.

Nearly 2 years later, we were married.  Natalya has since graduated High School in June 2009 and finished University, she is now working in Charlotte, North Carolina as a nurse.

Pastor Amet and Alexia’s Various Ministry activities and sub-categories:
Ever since we were married in December 2007, we have been sharing in our Newsletters and in our speech that God has given us a vision, and that vision is found in His word in 1 Corinthians 16:19a “for a wide door for effective service has opened to me”.  We want to share with you that even more today we feel this message and continue to pursue His calling on our ministry.  Over the last several years, God has opened up numerous doors to us, both in the Banlieue (the ministry to the slums) and even more so now through our Mass Media Ministry with our Senegalese Association we have created under the name “Kaddu Gu Sell Gi” (“The Holy Word”).  We are now broadcasting on 6 different radio stations, and continue to produce Video Testimonies of Christians have come out of a Muslim Background as well as numerous Bible teachings useful for evangelism and discipleship, all of which are produced by local believers in Wolof, the primary local language.  We receive calls from a large number of listeners and are working on follow up with those listeners. And, we have received permission for the frequency of our own radio station in the Region of Fatick, which began airing on March 17, 2018.
