One of the popular families in Geji, then referred to as the Gandi family, migrated to and settled at the southern part of Toro Local Government Area. To date, that village settlement is known and referred to as Gandi village in Palama ward. Geji is in the eastern part in Bauchi State, Nigeria.
Their lives and lifestyles include being artists, family farmers, running business, and educational pursuits.
Some of the Geji are Christian, but others are either Muslim or they stick with traditional religious beliefs.
The Geji people need to submit to Jesus Christ so they can experience the abundant life He offers them in John 10:10.
Pray that the Geji people will have a spiritual hunger that will open their hearts to the King of kings. Pray for workers who are driven by the love and boldness of the Holy Spirit to go to them. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement among them to begin this decade.
