"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Unreached of the Day: Badyara, Badyaranke of Guinea

Badyara, Badyaranke of Guinea
Most Badyara earn their primary living as subsistence farmers, with villages consisting of 100 to 500 people. Parents do not allow a young couple to marry if they are suspected of loving each other. They believe that the man will lose his power over the woman if he loves her, and vice versa. They are very proud of their unique historical and cultural roots. Islam is the predominant religion. However, they believe that spirits live in the rocks. Each house has a little jar filled with small rocks for protection and appeasement of the spirits.

Ministry Obstacles
Spiritual opposition to the Gospel message is always to be expected, and workers should be prepared for it.

Outreach Ideas
Gospel recordings are available in the Badyara language. Pray for workers to carry these recordings to the people, and for receptive hearts to listen and understand.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are a few professing Christians among the Badyara. Pray they will clearly understand the basis of a relationship with God, that is, faith in the finished work of Christ. Pray for accuracy of understanding and faithfulness in practice.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for good yields for farm crops, and for good farming practices. Pray also for employment opportunities for the youth of the tribe.

Scripture Focus
"After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb." Revelation 7:9
