Mushunguli in Somalia

The Mushunguli are said to have descended from fugitive slaves who escaped from their Somali masters in northeast Tanzania around 1840. Many migrated to Somalia in search of security from the slave-trade. Mainstream Somalis look down upon them because of their slave origins. Traditionally, the Mushunguli were farmers and they formed a "caste" group of Somali minorities known as the jareer or jirir.

Ministry Obstacles
Somalia is not a hospitable place for Christian outsiders to live and work.

Outreach Ideas
Christians need to minister to the material and physical needs of these poor people, building friendships and trust.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the few Christians among the Mushunguli tribe, that they will find each other, and fellowship together. Pray they will understand well how to know and follow Christ, and will faithfully follow him.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray these people will be able to care for their families, and live in safety and peace.

Scripture Focus
