Mushunguli in Somalia

The Mushunguli people 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 people 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 among them.

Scripture Focus

"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."  Joshua 1:8

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from this people group will not only study but apply what God teaches through His word.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the few Christians within the Mushunguli tribe, that they would find one another and fellowship together. Pray they would understand well how to know and follow Christ and would faithfully follow him. Pray these people would be able to care for their families, living in safety and peace.
