Fula Jalon in Guinea

pronounced: FOO-lah jah-LONE

The Fula Jalon are a large people group located in the western African nations of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Senegal. A small population resides in Guinea Bissau. The culture and heritage of the group is nearly the same in all three countries. Their livelihood is primarily based on farming and shepherding. Although Fula Jalon villages are scattered, each village has a central court and a mosque. Islamic schools are set up for the children in some of the villages.

Ministry Obstacles

The Fula Jalon are a very large people group, and many workers are needed to saturate the group with the good news of Jesus.

Outreach Ideas

There are quite a number of followers of Christ in other tribes in Guinea. Pray that some will be given the desire and opportunity to reach the Fula Jalon.

Scripture Focus

May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God. Phil 1: 11

Scripture Prayer

Pray for righteous character for those who find the Lord among this people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray for those who know and follow Jesus among the Fula Jalon. Pray they will be obedient to Christ, and will live holy lives. Pray they will learn to live in the power of Christ's Spirit, demonstrating the fruit of his Spirit. Pray the Fula Jalon people will increasingly be drawn to Jesus (whom Muslims call Isa al-Masih) as they study the Koran. Pray they will have a desire to learn more about him, and that he will reveal himself to them.
