Niger

Our vision is to make disciples where Christ is least known.

  • We live in a world permeated by an evil that has invaded and corrupted every aspect of life, leaving humankind separated from the Creator and trapped in sin. We are convinced that the gospel changes everything and sets us free. God has called SIM to help bring this life-changing message to Niger.
  • We are convinced no one should live and die without hearing the good news. Yet, more than 17 million people are living and dying without Christ in Niger.
  • We believe we are called to mobilise Christ’s servants to bring the message of salvation to Niger. We are called by God from all corners of the earth to serve as a diverse ministry team.

Communities where Christ is least known

Fulani

Fulani are one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa, stretching from Senegal into parts of Central Africa. While they have a common language, there are many dialects that can make the Fulfulde spoken in one area almost incomprehensible in another area.
Fulani are traditionally nomadic herders, and while many still are, a significant number are now settled in villages and towns as farmers, artisans and merchants. However, owning cattle is still key to their ethnic identity, and many count their riches by the number of cattle they own. Islam, the most prevalent religion among the Fulani, is also a key part of their ethnic identity. Fulani culture highly values self-control and does not allow any demonstration of weakness.
In Niger, the New Testament is now available in two dialects. There are small groups of believers among the Fulani. Missionaries working with the Fulani people use a variety of tools to share the gospel: radio broadcasts, literacy support, Bible translation, friendship evangelism and the ongoing nurturing of new believers.

Prayers

1

Pray for the Fulani who have responded to the gospel, that God will give them courage to remain faithful to Him, despite much opposition from their families and society. Pray that many more will respond to the gospel.
