Fulani, Fulakunda of Senegal
The lives of the Fulakunda center around their herds of cattle or sheep, and a person's wealth is measured by how many head of livestock he owns. Although they may lack a scholarly grasp of book knowledge, they are considered skilled social analysts. Some Fulakunda elders have traveled in many countries and know the language, people, and culture of each. The Fulakunda are a Muslim people, and adhere strongly to virtues and good morals such as justice, honesty, generosity, and patience.
Foreign Christians sometimes confuse their own culture with the Bible and bring their (western) culture instead of bringing God's Kingdom's life in Jesus.
Christians from other West African countries may be able to help disciple the believers in Christ among the Fulakunda, as well as introduce other Fulakunda people to Christ. Pray for African Christian tribal workers to become available. Senegal is generally open to Christian workers.
There are only a handful of followers of Jesus among the Fulakunda tribe, and they very much need prayer support from outsiders. Pray they won't waver in their commitment to Christ. Pray they in all things will grow up into him who is the Head, Christ.
Pray the Fulakunda tribe will be able to prepare their children for the rapidly changing conditions of the modern world. Pray they will make schooling a priority, and that good schools will be available.
