Biafada, Biafar in Guinea-Bissau

Like most of the people in West Africa, the Biafada are farmers and raise livestock. The Biafada language does not yet have any scripture at all. The people are open to hearing God's Word, yet there are many obstacles to overcome. This language group lives within the enemy's stronghold, with a strong adherence to the dominant religion of this area mixed with spirit worship. Persecution for new believers is very intense. Ten new believers were denied food and shelter, and eventually renounced their faith. Significant challenges should be expected.

Ministry Obstacles

Spiritual opposition can be expected whenever Jesus Christ is presented. Pray this will be overcome and the people will find freedom to understand and believe.

Outreach Ideas

There are a number of Christians in Guinea-Bissau. Pray that the Lord will lead some of these to befriend the Biafada people, and share Christ with them. Pray for boldness to do this, with tact.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There is mention of a few followers of Jesus among the Biafada in Guinea-Bissau. Pray they will reach out to their neighbors with the gospel and that they will seek encouragement in growing in the knowledge of Christ.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Biafada tribe will increasingly be drawn to Isa (Jesus) as they hear the Koran read in the mosque. Pray they will be given much curiosity to find out more about this man who is so much more than an honored prophet.

Scripture Focus

"How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" Romans 10:14-15

Biafada, Biafar in Guinea-Bissau

Como la mayoría de la gente de África Occidental, los Biafada son campesinos y crían ganado. Todavía no existen escrituras en el idioma Biafada. La gente es abierta a escuchar la Palabra de Dios, sin embargo hay muchos obstáculos que superar. Este grupo lingüístico vive dentro de los dominios de su enemigo donde están arraigados a la religión dominante de esta región que a la vez esta mezclada con adoración de espíritus. La persecución de nuevos creyentes es muy intensa. En un caso, 10 nuevos creyentes fueron negados comida y techo y por esto eventualmente renunciaron su fe. Retos importantes han de esperarse.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Habrá oposición espiritual cuando se les presente Jesucristo. Ore para que esta oposición pueda ser superada y que la gente pueda encontrar la libertad para entender y creer.

Ideas para el Ministerio

En Guinea-Bissau hay un buen número de cristianos. Ore para que el Señor dirija algunos de estos creyentes a hacer amistad con los Biafada y compartir Cristo con ellos. Ore para que tengan osadía y tacto para hacer esto.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Se menciona que hay algunos seguidores de Jesús entre los Biafada en Guinea-Bissau. Ore para que estos hermanos alcancen sus vecinos con el Evangelio y que busquen ánimo en su crecimiento en sabiduría en Cristo.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que la tribu Biafada sea cada vez atraída a Isa (Jesús) mientras escuchan la lectura de su Corán en sus mezquitas. Ore para que tengan mucha curiosidad por averiguar más de este hombre quien es más que un profeta venerado.

Texto Bíblico

"¿Cómo, pues, invocarán a aquel en el cual no han creído? ¿Y cómo creerán en aquel de quien no han oído? ¿Y cómo oirán sin haber quien les predique? ¿Y cómo predicarán si no fueren enviados? Como está escrito: !Cuán hermosos son los pies de los que anuncian la paz, de los que anuncian buenas nuevas!" Romans 10:14,15

Biafada, Biafar in 기니비사우

Biafada 종족은 농부이며 가축을 기르는데, 이는 서아프리카의 대부분 민족들과 비슷합니다. 하지만 Biafada 언어로 된 성경은 전혀 없습니다. 이 민족은 하나님의 말씀을 듣는 데에는 마음이 열려 있지만, 극복해야 할 장애물들이 많습니다. 이 언어집단이 사는 곳은 대적들의 근거지에 속해 있으며, 이 지역의 우세한 종교와 정령숭배를 강하게 고수하고 있습니다. 새로운 성도가 생겼을 때에는 심각한 핍박이 가해지곤 합니다. 새신자들이 음식과 주거지를 구하려 해도 거절당하기 때문에 결국 자신들의 신앙을 저버리게 되었습니다. (복음화에 앞서서) 상당한 도전들이 예상됩니다.

선교 장애 요인

예수 그리스도가 전파될 때마다 영적인 저항이 예상됩니다. 이들이 이것을 극복하고, 복음을 이해하고 믿을 수 있는 자유를 찾게 되도록 기도해 주십시오.

전도 방법 제안

기니비사우에는 수많은 그리스도인들이 있습니다. 주님께서 이들중 일부를 이끄셔서 Biafada 민족과 친구맺게 하시기를 기도해 주시고, 그들이 그리스도를 나눌 수 있게 되기를 기도해 주십시오. 이런 일을 재치있게 할 수 있는 용기를 위해 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

기니비사우의 Biafada 사람들 가운데에는 예수님을 따르는 이들이 소수 있다고 합니다. 그들이 복음을 들고 자신들의 이웃들에게 나아갈 수 있도록, 그리스도의 지식 안에서 자라나면서 용기를 얻게 되도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Biafada 부족이 그들의 모스크에서 코란을 읽을 때에 Isa (예수님)에 대해 더욱더 이끌려 나오게 되도록 기도해 주십시오. 단순히 존경받는 예언자를 넘어선 이분에 대해 더큰 호기심을 받게 되도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

그런즉 저희가 믿지 아니하는 이를 어찌 부르리요 듣지도 못한 이를 어찌 믿으리요 전파하는 자가 없이 어찌 들으리요 보내심을 받지 아니하였으면 어찌 전파하리요 기록된바 아름답도다 좋은 소식을 전하는 자들의 발이여 함과 같으니라 로마서 10:14-15
