Introduction

The Hausa are originally from an area known as "Hausaland," a region covering 75,000 square miles and straddling the borders of Niger and Nigeria. The Hausa have migrated to Cote d 'Ivoire over the last 200 to 300 years. Hausa traders, Muslim priests and Hausa-speaking slaves helped to spread the Hausa culture throughout Ivory Coast. Hausa became the language of Muslims and of trade. Still, the official language of Cote d 'Ivoire, also known as "Ivory Coast," is French.


Ministry Obstacles

Fear that Christianity undermines their identity, communities and traditions is one way Satan uses to hinder Hausa communities from accepting Christ's blessings.


Outreach Ideas

Pray for believers to build bridges of friendship and trust with Hausa family leaders.


Prayer Focus

Pray that Hausa people who know Christ will become wise in sowing the Word of God among their families and friends. Pray for Jesus movements to infiltrate extended families so the gospel will spread rapidly among this people group.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to give the Hausa people teachable and understanding hearts.
Pray for a strong movement of the Holy Spirit will bring entire Hausa families into a rich experience of God's blessing.
