The Tamajaq Bible Camp is underway in Niamey. This is a special week for the Tamajaq Christian community in Niger and Mali. Believers from Bamako, Gao, Timbuktu, Agadez, Abalak, Tchintabaraden, Maradi, Madaoua and Niamey are gathering together for worship, fellowship and concentrated Bible teaching. The teaching will be focused on the book of Ephesians with special emphasis on unity, identity in Christ and the armor of God. Over 100 people were at the opening. A highlight of the week will be the music in both French and Tamajaq. Music is part of the rich cultural heritage of the Tamajaq people.
