Introduction

Scattered mostly in Nigeria and Cameroon, these semi-nomadic people fiercely reject anything they perceive as contrary to their lifestyle of roaming with their cattle herds. This includes education (they are mostly non-literate) and permanent homes. They are widely regarded as troublesome impediments to the large cattle ranchers. One businessman and member of a ruling party has established two large cattle ranches, forcing the Fulani tribal people from their historic grazing land. They were given no compensation. Their inability to read and intense independence have placed them on unequal footing with greedy people like these who take advantage of them.


Ministry Obstacles

The inability to read is an obstacle to learning about Christ if the gospel comes to them only in printed form.


Outreach Ideas

Christians need to be genuinely concerned about the material welfare of the Fulani people, finding ways to assist them, building friendships and trust.


Prayer Focus

Pray the few Christian believers among the Fulani people would be sent teachers to help them become well established in the faith. Pray they would find each other in order to fellowship together. Pray they would learn to live in the power of Christ's Spirit, experiencing the fruit of Christ's Spirit consistently. Pray the Fulani would be able to care adequately for their families, and be led to be better prepared for the rapidly changing conditions of the 21st century. Pray they would see the need to make schooling a priority for their children.
