The Kofa people also go by Kofyar Bahumono, Kofa Bahumono or Kofyar. Their language is called Kofyar, and it’s part of the Niger-Congo language group.
The Kofa people are cattle herders and farmers who grow sorghum, millet and yams. In their spare time they enjoy their own music and dance styles. They usually perform these at celebrations and community events.
Though the Kofa have their own ethnic religions, they are in the process of converting either to Islam or Christianity.
The Kofa people do not always have access to adequate services like medical care and potable water. There are community development efforts to provide them with income generating activities.
Pray for loving gospel workers to catch a vision for reaching the Kofa people for Jesus and that in God's sovereign timing the hearts of these people would be open and ready to follow him.
Pray for Jesus movements to bless extended families so the gospel will spread rapidly.
Pray for the spiritual lives of the Kofa people to become fruitful so others will be drawn to Jesus Christ.
