Introduction / History

The Kono people live in a semi-mountainous region of Southeast Guinea. There are some Christian churches in the area, but most of the Kono hold animistic beliefs. The Christian population is very small. The Kono have been known to burn down churches and chase Christians from their villages. However, in recent years they have changed and desire for a missionary to come translate the Bible into their language. They are very eager and have even prepared a translation committee. They have been waiting for several years for someone to come and translate the Bible. They have changed from being very hostile to Christianity to being very much more open, they're just waiting to hear the Gospel.
