Daasanach in South Sudan

Daasanach in South Sudan

The Daasanach are a people with a fairly short history. Their community ties have resulted from a common place of residence rather than from heredity. They are known for their fighting prowess and are feared by many neighboring groups. Daasanach warriors are proud of the number of enemies they have killed. They take cattle from their neighbors in raids. The Daasanach are reluctant to adopt outside technology. They also farm, growing their own grains.

Ministry Obstacles

It is very hard for neighboring Christianized people to want to go to these people who are known for violent raids.

Outreach Ideas

There are many vibrant Christians both in South Sudan and nearby Kenya that can be Christ’s witnesses.

Scripture Focus

"And he said to them, The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest."  Luke 10:2

Scripture Prayer

Pray for an abundance of Holy Spirit-led workers to disciple this people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the Lord to thrust out determined and loving witnesses of the grace of Jesus to the Daasanach people. Pray for the Lord to do whatever it takes to turn these people from violence and destructive behavior to peaceful and productive lives as a testimony of what the Holy Spirit can do. Pray for a spiritual revival that will turn the hearts of tens of thousands in East Africa to the Lord of lords.
