Fulani, Toroobe in Nigeria

The Fulani have been largely responsible for introducing and spreading Islam throughout much of western Africa. They have been a nomadic people and influential in regional politics, economics, and histories throughout western Africa for over a thousand years. The height of the Fulani empire was between the early 1800s and early 1900s, being consolidated under Usman dan Fodio and centered in northern Nigeria.

Ministry Obstacles

The Fulani have followed Islam for centuries, giving them a worldview not easily influenced by the good news about Christ.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for movements to Jesus to sweep through Fulani families, infusing the group from within. Sustained, focused prayer is needed to help the Fulani come to a sufficient understanding of who Jesus truly is, the Son of God. Spiritual truths are spiritually discerned, and prayer is needed.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are only a few followers of Christ among the Toroobe Fulani. Pray their faith will become firmly established on the truth of Scripture.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Fulani to find Jesus (whom Muslims call Isa al-Masih), of increasing interest, someone to study. Pray for their curiosity to be satisfied.

Scripture Focus

"After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb." Revelation 7:9
