Introduction / History

Majera is a language more than a people group. There are very few people who still speak this language.


Where Are they Located?

Majera speakers live in Chad and Cameroon.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Majera speakers are in the process of learning to adjust to other languages and cultures. Their own language is dying out.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Though most Majera speakers are officially Muslim, they usually depend heavily on the spirit world for their daily needs.


What Are Their Needs?

The Majera speakers need to find out about the savior, who can take care of all their physical and spiritual needs if they would only give Him their hearts.


Prayer Points

* Pray that people who speak this dying language will put their identity in Christ for their worth rather than in their ethnic or religious backgrounds.
* Pray for Majera speakers to have an intense spiritual hunger that will lead them to Christ.
* Pray for a disciple making movement to sweep through Majera speaking communities in Chad and Cameroon.
