Communities where He is least known

The Deaf

There are an estimated 72 million deaf people scattered across every nation on Earth, whose primary means of communication is one of the world’s 350 sign languages. Only about 2% of them follow Jesus. Not even one sign language group has the entire Bible in their first language. Guinea’s deaf population (around 27,000 people) mainly uses an assortment of "home signs," which only family and close friends understand. This hinders them from learning about Jesus in a way they can understand.

Muslims of Upper Guinea

Upper Guinea has been home to the Maninka people for centuries. More recently, people from Guinea’s largest ethnic group, the Fulas, have moved in and now call Upper Guinea their home.  Each group is fiercely proud of its language, culture, and religion.  Ethnic tensions surface from time to time. Those who consider following Jesus fall under intense family and social pressure to remain faithful to Islam. Despite this pressure, God is working, and there has been increasing interest what the Bible says. Micro SD cards with God’s Good News in Maninka are being widely distributed. 

Prayers

1

Pray for the Kids’ Club children and their families to be open to the truth about Jesus.

2

Pray for missionaries who are currently learning a local language.

3

Pray for isolated believers to find fellowship and have access to God’s Word. 

4

Pray for effective distribution of the radio series called "The Way of Righteousness."

5

Pray for the Lord to raise up godly believers on the university campus and in the workplace, who will love their Muslim neighbors and point them to Christ.

6

Pray for deaf Christians to gain a vision for reaching the deaf in communities where Christ is not known.


Stories from this Country

The seed planter

This week we were privileged to hear the testimony of a man whose life was eternally changed by a simple question. We invited Martin to sit around a table on our back porch to share with us how the Lord saved him, and how God opened his eyes to the truth of the Gospel. This is Martin’s story.

Encouraged and empowered: Helping women help themselves

The spiritual world was always real for Prang. But it was the world of dark, evil spirits.
