Introduction / History

The Mambay are agriculturalist and fishers. They export agricultural products and fish to other parts of Chad and Cameroon and trade with the neighboring groups. There are very few schools in the area, and few children enroll into primary school, nonetheless, they are very keen and interested in learning how to read and write in their language.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Missionaries first came to Chad from Cameroon through the Mambay area. Their target was to evangelize the neighboring people groups. Since, the Mundang language was very large, they felt that the Mambay understood it, and so, they concentrated their efforts there. A church was started that used Scripture and teaching in Mundang. It is not until recently that they discovered that the Mambay could not understand the neighboring languages. A majority has now converted to Islam, within the last 30 years. However, there is a Christian community who are ready and committed to work on translating the Bible into Mambay.


Prayer Points

Pray for trained Mambay people to work and have the gospel in a form they can easily understand for effective evangelism of the Mambay Muslims and discipleship of Mambay Christians.
