Odienne Jula in Côte d'Ivoire

Odienne Jula in Côte d'Ivoire

The Jula (or Dyula) people are skilled craftsmen and merchants. The Jula are in subgroups, one of which is the Odienne, the name of a town in northwestern Cote d'Ivoire with its own airport. This has long been a trading center.

Ministry Obstacles

The Odienne Jula have put their faith in the spirit world and the mercy of Allah instead of the atoning blood of Jesus Christ. They need someone to show them the way to the cross so they can experience God's forgiveness.

Outreach Ideas

The Jula peoples are fiercely loyal to their clans. A movement to Christ might need to happen at the clan level. They maintain their cultural history through the oral traditions of dance and storytelling, which are probably best for presenting the gospel as well. In hierarchical societies, people cannot make important spiritual decisions without the approval of their leaders, so anyone who wants to reach them for Christ must go through their existing leaders. Christian international businessmen may be bridges of blessing into this people group.

Scripture Focus

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty."  Psalm 91:1

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from today’s people group to find rest in their relationship with the Lord.

Prayer Focus

As far as we know, there are no followers of Christ among the Odienne Jula people. Pray this would soon change and many will become Christ's disciples. Pray for believers to go as his ambassadors to the Odienne Jula people of Cote d 'Ivoire. Pray for the Lord to give the gift of faith to many within this people group. Pray for spiritual awakening in their homes, villages and even in their mosques.
