Introduction / History

The Kantosi people in Ghana are an unreached tribe in West Africa.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They are isolated from other tribes that do not want to associate with them.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Kantosi People in Ghana are largely Muslim, mixed with ethnic religion. They labor under domination of spirits, superstitions, and Islamic requirements that dominate every aspect of their lives. They know nothing of the living God who loves them and has provided for them to live in His sinless eternity.


What Are Their Needs?

This unreached people group does not have a translation of the Word of God, but some audio resources exist in their Kantosi language. Since English is used in Ghana, Kantosi people can understand it. Someone needs to teach them from the many English Bible resources that exist. No churches, and no outreach exists to tell them God’s truth.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Kantosi in Ghana.

Pray that loving, compassionate Muslim background believers will live among Kantosi people in Ghana, leading them to Christ and discipling them to reach their families. Pray that church plants will occur among Kantosi people that will reach other tribes, breaking down barriers among them. Pray for a spiritual hunger that will lead them to the cross.
