Joshua Project defines an unreached or least-reached people group as “A people group among which there is no indigenous community of believing Christians with adequate numbers and resources to evangelize this people group.”  A people group may be determined by ethnicity or language, or a mix of both.  For a more detailed explanation, visit the Joshua Project’s website at http://www.joshuaproject.net/definitions.php#unreached

The Fulani of West Africa are a nomadic people, inhabiting Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Ghana, Benin, Niger, Nigeria, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Sudan, and Chad.  The Fulani number approximately 15 million, of which only 0.002% are Christians.  That’s an incredibly small number.  The 2008 estimate of the United States population is over 303 million (Wikipedia).  Imagine that no one in the United States knew Christ except for the inhabitants of a city about the size of Las Vegas (just over 600, 000 people) (SignOnSanDiego.com).  Proportionally, that’s how many Fulani know Christ. 

Pray for the Fulani, that God would send more of his people to learn their ways and live with them, so they can show them His mercy.  Pray that God would strengthen those who are his among the Fulani, that they would be bold in glorifying Him.  Also, pray that the work of translating the Bible into all the dialects of the Fulani would be done quickly.  To learn more about the Fulani, visit http://www.gosahara.org/fulani.html.  For very helpful cultural information, visit  http://www.jamtan.com/

“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
