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

 Unreached of the Day: Dogose, Doghosie of Burkina Faso

Dogose, Doghosie of Burkina Faso
The Doghosie are a small tribe which formerly lived in Ghana. Since the eighteenth century, they have migrated across the river to their present location in south central Burkina Faso. The Doghosie, like other groups in the river basin region, live in fortress-like compounds. The rectangular fortresses are made of clay or mud, and have flat roofs and thick, high walls. Most Doghosie follow traditional animistic beliefs, believing that non-living objects have spirits. They worship both the spirits of deceased ancestors and the elements of nature. They believe that the earth watches over the community and brings fertility to its soil, while their ancestors watch over household matters.

Ministry Obstacles
There are few Christian resources available in the Dogose language. Pray that additional resources will soon be developed.

Outreach Ideas
Gospel recordings are available in the language of the Dogose. Pray for workers to take these recordings to the people, and for the people to listen with eagerness and understanding. Pray the Dogose Christians will become mature enough in the faith to explain the Gospel effectively to others in the tribe.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are followers of Jesus among the Dogose tribe. Pray they will be accurately taught the ways of Christ, and be fully committed to being his disciples.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for good relations to be maintained between the Dogose tribe and their neighbors in the river basin region.

Scripture Focus
"Tell of His glory among the nations, His wonderful deeds among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised." 1 Chronicles 16:24-25
