These people may be called Mwani, NaMwani, or NaMuane. They are quite isolated, and trace their ancestry to the island of Ibo, near the coast of Mozambique. Ibo island was the scene of struggle between Arabs and Portuguese, resulting in much destruction. The people use the Mwani language in the home, Swahili for trading, and Portuguese in the schools and government.
Workers are needed to carry scripture and other Gospel resources to the Mwani people, as well as to pray diligently for them.
Gospel radio may be used to communicate the Gospel of grace to these people who are committed to working their way into God's favor.
There are a few believers among the Mwani. Pray for them, that qualified teachers and pastors will be sent to them to help them grow in the faith.
Pray that living conditions for the Mwani may improve. They are quite poor, and have few opportunities for employment or for good quality education for their children.
