The streets of Dakar are eerily quiet today. Hundreds of thousands of people have left the city to make the annual pilgrimmage to Touba, the holy city of the Mouride Islamic Brotherhood. The pilgrimmage, known as the Grand Magal, attracts up to two million people. Thus, the city of Dakar is left mostly empty. I have mixed feelings as I drive around. On the one hand, it is nice to get where I want to go without sitting in diesel fume choked traffic jams. On the other hand, I know that a few hundred miles away, millions of people are going to great effort and expense to show their devotion to a religion which will only lead them down a blind path. Please take some time today to pray that these pilgrims would find the true way, Jesus Christ.
