Communities where Christ is least known

The Dioula (Jula) and Malinké (Maninka)

The Dioula (Jula) and Malinke (Maninka) peoples have been Muslim since the 1400s. They had good relations with nonMuslim neighbours and tried to convert them to Islam by setting a good example rather than by force.
Today, the more prestigious members of these people groups send their sons to Islamic schools, where the boys become more entrenched in Islamic theology. Like most Muslim peoples of Africa, these groups have maintained pre-Islamic beliefs, which involve amulets, charms and a complex spirit world.
