Wassulu of Guinea

Wassulu of Guinea

A warm and hospitable people, the Wassulu of West Africa claim to originate from the Futa Jalon (Fulani) of Guinea. Geopolitical borders do not define the area inhabited by the Wassulu people. The Wassulu region expands from the southwest corner of Mali, to the northwest corner of Ivory Coast and the northeast part of Guinea. Their villages are often remote. Although there is strong evidence of Muslim practices in their villages, many of the Wassulu also continue to follow traditional African religious beliefs and practices.

Ministry Obstacles

To follow Jesus among the Wassulu is to create division between oneself and family and friends. Such divisions are very significant barriers to belief.

Outreach Ideas

The Kissi tribe in Guinea has a large number of Christian believers. Perhaps the Kissi will carry the Gospel of Christ to their Wassulu neighbors. Pray to this end.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Jesus among the Wassulu community, that they will find each other in order to fellowship. Pray for accuracy in understanding the Gospel of grace. Pray they won't mix the teachings of Christ with traditional African religions.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray that each mature individual in the Wassulu tribe will have at least one opportunity to clearly hear the good news about Jesus in his or her mother tongue. Pray even for more than one opportunity, since it usually requires several in order to really understand and believe.
