Senoufo, Dyimini in Cote d'Ivoire

One important aspect of Senoufo society is its concept of "community." The Senoufo think of themselves as one group, with all of their ideas pointing in the same direction. The concept of the "individual" is known only in limited circumstances; thus, no man stands alone. Instead, each person is thought of as part of an extended family, a member of the village, the elder or younger brother, etc. Everyone eats as a group and dips into a common dish. The fields are worked collectively, food is stored collectively, and each family contributes to the village. A Senoufo is always aware of his place in the society as it relates to others in the group. To the Senoufo, the good of the community always comes before the good of the individual. Unless the entire tribe makes a change, such as converting to a different religion, no one does.

Ministry Obstacles

To make a major decision such as becoming a follower of Christ without tribal approval will bring very negative results to an individual. To be cut off from the people most important to a person is painful.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps believers from the neighboring Tagwana Senoufo tribe will be led by the Lord's Spirit to minister to the Dyimini Senoufo. Pray they will be able to overcome tribal hostilities and other barriers.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Please pray for the followers of Christ among the Senoufo, that they will be able to resist pressure to abandon their faith. Pray they will meet together for mutual encouragement.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Senoufo will find employment opportunities, and will improve farming practices as needed to provide adequately for their families.

Scripture Focus

"Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name." 1 Chronicles 16:28-29

Bhuiya in India

La mayoría de los bhuiya no tienen terrenos, sin embargo algunos poseen tierras cultivables. Dependen principalmente en el trabajo de obreros, el manejo del rickshaw, la albañilería, etc. Su colección de dioses incluye un gran número de deidades, tales como Dihwal, Gorraiyya y Bir Bhairon. Su tasa de alfabetización era del 4.3% según el censo del 1981.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

La comunidad bhuiya habla más de 30 idiomas. Al evangelizar y plantar iglesias se necesita tomar en cuenta las subdivisiones lingüísticas dentro de la comunidad.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Al tener una tasa de alfabetización muy baja se requiere que el Evangelio de Cristo sea presentado principalmente en forma oral. Se pueden incluir historias de las Escrituras, grabaciones y películas evangelísticas tanto como otros medios visuales y orales.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Ore para que el puñado de cristianos en la comunidad bhuiya tenga el deseo de crecer en Cristo, siendo sus discípulos y no sólo cristianos de nombre. Ore para que se pongan toda la armadura de Dios incluyendo el escudo de la fe.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que la comunidad bhuiya pueda cuidar a sus familias, y para que estén disponibles las escuelas para sus hijos. Ore para que hagan prioridad la educación.

Texto Bíblico

"Todas las naciones que hiciste vendrán y adorarán delante de ti, Señor, Y glorificarán tu nombre." Salmos 86:9

Senoufo, Dyimini in 코트디부아르

Senufo 사회의 중요한 관점은 "공동체"의 개념입니다. Senufo 사람들은 자신들이 하나의 그룹에 속해있고 모두 같은 생각을 지향한다고 봅니다. "개인"이라는 것은 제한적인 상황에서만 등장하는 개념입니다. 따라서 어떤 이도 개별 행동을 하지 않습니다. 대신에 각 사람은 대가족의 일부이며 마을의 회원이고 형 혹은 동생의 위치를 갖고 있다고 생각합니다. 모든 이들은 다 같이 먹고 같은 그릇에서 음식을 떠먹습니다. 농장에서도 다 같이 일하고 음식도 다같이 모으고, 각 가족이 마을에 기여하게 됩니다. Senufo 사람들은 한 그룹 안에서 자신의 위치를 항상 알고 있습니다. Senufo 사람들에게 공동체의 이익은 개인의 이익을 항상 앞섭니다. 다른 종교로 개종하는 등의 큰 변화는 전체 부족이 다 같이 하는 것이 아니라면 개인 단독으로 시행하지 않습니다.

선교 장애 요인

부족 전체의 허락 없이 그리스도를 따르는 등의 중대한 결정을 하는 것은 개인에게 매우 부정적 영향을 끼칠 것으로 보입니다. 개인에게 가장 중요한 집단에서 잘려 나간다는 것은 고통스러운 일입니다.

전도 방법 제안

이웃하고 있는 Tagwana Senoufo 종족의 신자들이 주님의 영에 이끌려 Dyimini Senoufo 종족에게 사역할 수 있을 것입니다. 부족간의 적대감과 다른 장벽들을 극복할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Senoufo 종족 가운데 그리스도를 따르는 이들을 위해 기도하여 믿음을 버리라는 압력을 저항할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오. 서로 격려하기 위해 성도끼리 만날 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Senoufo 사람들이 고용의 기회를 찾게 되도록, 가족들을 먹이기에 충분할 만큼 농업 기술의 향상이 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

만방의 족속들아 영광과 권능을 여호와께 돌릴찌어다 여호와께 돌릴찌어다 여호와의 이름에 합당한 영광을 그에게 돌릴찌어다 예물을 가지고 그 앞에 들어갈찌어다 아름답고 거룩한 것으로 여호와께 경배할찌어다 역대상 16:28-29
