Communities where He is least known

The Soninke

Three-quarters of the Soninke in Côte d'Ivoire practice their traditional ethnic religion. They are primarily animists, who believe that a spirit or force resides in every animate and inanimate object. They live in fear of evil spirits and constantly strive to appease them. The remaining one-quarter of the Soninke are Sunni Muslims, following the teachings of Mohammed. They faithfully adhere to the five essential "pillars," or duties, of Islam. These include affirming that "there is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet," praying five times a day while facing Mecca, giving alms generously, fasting during the month of Ramadan, and making at least one pilgrimage to Mecca, if possible.

The Soninke live primarily along the northern border of Côte d'Ivoire, as well as in Mali and Burkina Faso. Among all the Soninke in Côte d'Ivoire are only a few known Christians. Those who follow Jesus are severely persecuted; therefore, evangelising is extremely difficult. Most Soninke have not yet heard a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ask the Lord to send forth laborers into Côte d'Ivoire to share Christ with the Soninke.
