SIM Liberia, by faith, sees a body of mature believers who, being transformed by the power of the Gospel, go as servants to impact their communities and others for God.

Communities where He is least known

Mandingo (Manya)

The Mandingo people are located in the far northwest of Liberia, near Guinea. They are farmers growing rice, peanuts, beans, and vegetables. Trading is important for them, and many travel far from home for trading purposes. Many Mandingo in urban areas work as shopkeepers or auto mechanics. Today, they are virtually all Muslim; however, they have mingled Islam with their traditional beliefs. The Mandingo belief that spirits are good, evil, or mischievous is derived from Muslim teachings.

Also, Islam approves the use of magic to obtain healing from disease, the prevention of misfortune, and the assurance of prosperity and success. Only a handful of Mandingo Christian believers have been identified, with no indigenous church yet established.
