 Unreached of the Day: Dagaari Dioula, Wala of Burkina Faso

Dagaari Dioula, Wala of Burkina Faso
The Dagaari Dioula (Wala) live in village settlements that consist of several compounds. The settlements are widely scattered in order to leave room for farming and for each family's herds. A minority of the people follows traditional animistic beliefs, but the majority has adopted the dominant religion of the area: Islam. The animists carve ancestor shrines, animals, gods, and stools; and their religion is centered on deceased ancestors and objects of nature, both of which are worshipped.

Ministry Obstacles
The fear of offending ancestral spirits may keep many from considering a new belief system.

Outreach Ideas
Workers need to carry the good news of Jesus to these people in oral form, since translated scripture is not available. Gospel recordings can be used, as well as stories from scripture presented orally.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are a few Christian believers among the people. Pray they will be sent teachers to help them become firmly established on the truths of scripture. Pray they will live holy lives and be zealous to be obedient to Christ.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray that this tribe will see the importance of providing schooling for their children. Pray for the availability of good schools.

Scripture Focus
"Let the nations be glad and sing for joy; For You will judge the peoples with uprightness and guide the nations on the earth." Psalm 67:4
