Kulango, Bouna in Côte d'Ivoire

The Kulango live in a very hot region with only one annual rainy season. They sometimes suffer from dry spells, which makes farming quite difficult. While most of the Kulango continue living as farmers, many of the young people have migrated southward in search of work in the cities. Throughout the centuries, Dyula Muslim traders have come into the Kulango region with the intention of converting the locals to Islam. However, the Kulango have resisted. The majority continue to practice their traditional ethnic religions. The male head of each extended family is responsible for offering sacrifices to the ancestral spirits.

Ministry Obstacles

There are few Christian resources available in the language of the Kulango people. Pray for the soon development of such resources, and for workers to take them to the people.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that Christians from nearby Ghana will develop a desire to take the Gospel message across the border to the Kulango.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray the small number of Christian believers among the Kulango will experience unity and fellowship around the truth of scripture. Pray for an accurate understanding of how to please God in every way.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for adequate rainfall to allow farm crops to flourish, and for employment opportunities for the younger people.

Scripture Focus

"The people who walk in darkness, will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them." Isaiah 9:2
