Communities where Christ is least known

Children

Guinea is full of children; 42 per cent of the population is 14 years old or younger. In Upper Guinea, nearly all families are Muslim, although animistic beliefs and practices remain. Most children have access to some schooling, although the quality is low. It is difficult for children to reach higher grades without the support of a literate family member or additional tutoring. Schooling is in French, while children usually speak a local language. Polygamy and domestic violence are common. The frequency of marriage breakdowns or the death of a parent means that many children grow up separated from one or both parents. Pressure is strong from the extended family, and the cost of following Jesus is high. SIM workers, collaborating with local Sunday school teachers, have after-school clubs and science camps during school breaks.

Fulani

Numbering about 40 million across 20 countries of the Sahel and West Africa, Guinea is the only country where the Fulani are the largest ethnic group (41 per cent of the population). Rather than being nomadic cattle owners, many Guinean Fulani are settled farmers, business owners and merchants. Others in Guinea view the Fulani as very religious. Tensions and distrust often stem from political differences. Praise God for calling two missionary families to work with the Fulani in Upper Guinea.

Prayers

1

Pray for the Holy Spirit to prepare the Fulani to hear the gospel.
