This chapter discusses the efforts of immigrants and religious actors in a home country to build and sustain a transnational spiritual economy. Specialists in the production and dissemination of goods of salvation in this world (health, prosperity, good luck) and in the next make regular trips to America. Their visits and the activities and events surrounding them have become institutionalized. The impact they have in the host society and the home country is studied, with some illustrations.

Keywords:   Senegalese immigrants, Senegal, transnational relations, spiritual economy, host society
