Kanuri people are tall, with a stately, dignified appearance. This signifies their pride and appreciation for their past as rulers, as well as their present position of leadership and influence. Most Kanuri people are farmers; however, they usually practice some other occupations. Some are craftsmen and merchants during the dry season.
Kanuri villages contain a local school and mosque. Attached to the mosque are smaller schools for religious teachings. From an early age, Kanuri children are taught Islamic doctrines that leave no room for a victorious resurrected Savior.
Towns serve as local markets and administrative centers for the Kanuri. These locations may be the only possibilities for direct contact with Kanuri people to hear and accept the gospel.
"This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24
Praise the Lord that you have the privilege of praying for others to rejoice in Him.
Pray that Kanuri people in Cameroon would discover the Living Lord through all available sources from radio, internet and personal contacts with Christ followers. Pray that a discipleship movement would develop among these people for whom Lord Jesus laid down his life.
