Communities where Christ is least known

Yao

SIM has been working amongst the Yao people of Malawi since the late 1980s. The Yao are almost exclusively Muslim and are spread across eastern Malawi, northern Mozambique and southern Tanzania. In partnership with the Bible Society, the Scriptures were translated into Yao, and the full Yao Bible was published in 2014. Many missionaries have come and gone during this time — it is a difficult area in which to minister.
SIM also partners with OM in the ministry of Radio Lilanguka (“light” in the Yao language), a community radio station based in Mangochi, and with GZB, a Dutch mission organisation in a ministry called Mthenga Wabwino (“good messenger” in the Chichewa language). Mthenga Wabwino provides resources and training to help churches throughout Malawi engage with the communities around them.

Prières

1

Pray for the blessing of God’s Word in the heart language of the Yao people to impact this people group.

2

Pray for the ministry of Radio Lilanguka, that many Yao would hear the gospel and respond.

3

Pray for missionaries and ministry workers to courageously declare the good news of Jesus in the face of spiritual warfare and opposition.

4

Pray for the work of Mthenga Wabwino in training and mobilising churches.

5

Pray for fellowship groups of Yao believers to grow and be courageous witnesses in their own communities.

6

Pray for more kingdom workers to be sent to minister among the Yao.
