Introduction / History

The Fali people are divided into a couple of subgroups, one of which we call the South Fali. They live in northern Cameroon.


What Are Their Lives Like?

At one time they were hunter/gatherers, but now they are subsistence farmers. Men and women share duties to cultivate their crops.

The South Fali do not have adequate schools for their children.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The South Fali are mainly Muslim, but they have a Christian influence as well.


What Are Their Needs?

The South Fali need to put all their faith in Jesus Christ. Ideally Christian missionaries with a heart for children can live among them, teach them literacy skills, and allow the light of Jesus to shine through them.


Prayer Points

Pray for missionary schools to be established among the South Fali people in Cameroon.

Pray for South Fali disciples to make more disciples.

Pray for spiritual hunger and a desire for truth that will lead them to Jesus Christ.
