Pray for the Fulanke Peoples of Mali
The Fulanke of Mali, numbering 97,000, are Unengaged and Unreached.
Families live in separate, fenced-in compounds. Their homes are round, thatch-roof huts made of mud and sun-dried brick. Few of the homes have electricity or running water.
The Fulanke primarily work as farmers, miners, or merchants. Cattle are also raised, but only to gain prestige within the community or to use in ceremonies.
While each village is ruled by its own chief, the oldest descendants of the first Maninka settlers are counted as nobility and also have a certain amount of authority. There is a clear social order among the Maninka. Those with the highest status are, surprisingly, the musicians and the blacksmiths. When a Maninka singer dies, his library of original music must be burned. The Maninka people believe that blacksmiths have magical powers.
...Will you pray and see if GOD is calling you to take the good news to the Fulanke of Mali?
