Fulani, Fulakunda in Senegal

The lives of the Fulakunda center around their herds of cattle or sheep, and a person's wealth is measured by how many head of livestock he owns. Although they may lack a scholarly grasp of book knowledge, they are considered skilled social analysts. Some Fulakunda elders have traveled in many countries and know the language, people, and culture of each. The Fulakunda are a Muslim people, and adhere strongly to the tenets of their religion.

Ministry Obstacles
Foreign Christians sometimes confuse their own culture with the Bible and bring their (western) culture instead of bringing God's Kingdom's life in Jesus.

Outreach Ideas
Christians from other West African countries may be able to help disciple the believers in Christ among the Fulakunda, as well as introduce other Fulakunda people to Christ. Pray for African Christian tribal workers to become available. Senegal is generally open to Christian workers.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are only a handful of followers of Jesus among the Fulakunda tribe, and they very much need prayer support from outsiders. Pray they won't waver in their commitment to Christ. Pray they in all things will grow up into him who is the Head, Christ. Pray for workers needed to sow God's Word into Fulani families, healing and strengthening households with God's blessings.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Fulakunda people who know God will become wise in sowing the Word of God among their families and multiplying the blessings of God to other Fulakunda households. Pray they will be able to prepare their children for the rapidly changing conditions of the modern world. Pray they will make schooling a priority, and that good schools will be available.
