Fula Jalon in Guinea

Unreached of the Day  4/22/2021

Fula Jalon in Guinea

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 would be given the desire and opportunity to reach the Fula Jalon.

Scripture Focus

"But my people did not listen to my voice; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts, to follow their own counsels."  Psalm 81:11-12

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this will be the year when this people group stops following their own stubborn desires and begins to follow the Lord.

Prayer Focus

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