The Munji are of the Kashmiri people cluster and are, for the most part, only found in Afghanistan. They reside in northeastern Afghanistan in the Munjan and Mamalgha Valleys. This is a very remote area of Afghanistan and is separated by a mountain pass. Some have fled to Chitral, Pakistan, but plan to return to Afghanistan when it becomes more peaceful.
Any gospel effort will need to be presented using oral tools like music, skits, and gospel recordings, the JESUS Film.
The Munji are Muslims. There are few if any believers or churches among them.
There are no resources available to them in Southern Munji and no known groups taking Christ them.
Pray that the Munji people will have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings. Pray for workers who are driven by the love and boldness of the Holy Spirit to go to them. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement among them to begin this decade.
