Introduction / History

Kendeje is one of the four Maban languages. Kendeje has two dialects.


Where Are they Located?

This people group only lives in Chad, a solidly Muslim country in north-central Africa. Specifically they live in Ouaddai, a district that is near the border with Sudan.


What Are Their Lives Like?

There is much fighting and destruction in Darfur, the part of the world near where the Kendeje people live. The fighting means refugees must be coming to Ouaddai.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The primary religion practiced by the Kendeje people is Islam, a monotheistic religion built around the teachings of the Koran and of the prophet Mohammad. Though they are 100 percent Muslim, the Kendeje speakers depend on the spirit world for their daily needs, despite the teachings of Islamic leaders.


What Are Their Needs?

There are no Christian materials in the Kendeje language. When the gospel is presented to them, it will need to be presented in a language that seems foreign to them.


Prayer Points

* Pray for Christian materials, especially gospel recordings and music, to be translated into the Kendeje language.
* Pray for the Lord to reveal Himself to these people who have no way to hear His great name at this time.
* Pray for spiritual openness among the Kendeje people that will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that before this decade is over, there will be a disciple making movement among the Kendeje speakers in Chad.
