The Guruma people live in northern Nigeria, in an area where Sharia law has been imposed. They are primarily located in four main villages in Bauchi State. The Geruma are ruled by the Gera people, and because of this they have adopted Islam. Their literacy rate is low. Their language is shifting from Geruma to Hausa, the dominant language and culture of the area.
The Geruma people are resistant to the Gospel of Christ, and they live in an area where Sharia law is in effect. Much care must be taken by anyone approaching them with the Gospel.
Christian recordings are available in the Geruma language, and many resources are available in the Hausa language. Workers are needed to make these available to the people.
Pray for the Followers of Christ
There are Christians in some of the nearby people groups. Pray they will see their part of the Great Commission and reach out to the Geruma.
Pray for the Entire People Group
Pray the Geruma tribe will be given a growing desire to learn more about the man Isa (Jesus), as he is mentioned in the mosque. Perhaps he will come to some in dreams and visions.
