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

 Unreached of the Day: Zayse, Zergulla of Ethiopia

Zayse, Zergulla of Ethiopia
A basic value of the Zayse is tokuma, which is identification with the group. Cooperation is central to this system, especially in work arrangements. The Zayse have a reputation for being easygoing and sociable. They value hospitality and almsgiving, but more to relatives and friends than to strangers. The vast majority of the Zayse are animistic; that is, they believe that living things and inanimate objects have a soul or spirit. They worship a supreme, masculine sky god, whom they view as being remote and inaccessible. They also believe in the existence of zar, or spirits that live near water and in other places. It is also believed the zar may possess people.

Ministry Obstacles
No scripture has been reported in the language of the Zayse, but Gospel recordings are available. Please pray for workers to take these to the people.

Outreach Ideas
Please pray that some of the many Christians in Ethiopia will be given a desire and burden to take the good news of Jesus to the Zayse people. Pray they won't be overlooked.

Pray for the followers of Christ
It is questionable as to whether any of the Zayse tribe knows and follows Jesus as Savior and Lord. But pray for those who will soon come to saving faith. They will need workers to help them become firmly established on God's promises, not doubting or wavering.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray for pure drinking water for the Zayse people, and for sufficient water for their crops.

Scripture Focus
"For from the rising of the sun, even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations ... says the Lord of hosts." Malachi 1:11
