The Call

WADse01-1,2 Health Educator/Friendship Evangelism – Work hand-in-hand with your career missionary to reach a remote, nomadic tribe for Christ. Many avenues of outreach are available, from health/prenatal care or veterinary work to children’s ministry and literacy. Use your skills to develop friendships with the local people and share God’s love with them. Will study the French language.

The People

The Fulani people descended from nomadic herders from North Africa or the Middle East who, centuries ago, moved south into many areas of West and Central Africa. Today, many Fulani practice a mix of farming and herding. Some have become wealthy in business and have achieved high political rank.

The Fulani of Central Africa are overwhelmingly Muslim. Efforts to evangelize these people have produced only a very small number of converts. The Fulani believe that it is a mark of weakness to be controlled by fear, so they seldom show fear in public. They also tend to hide their feelings. Only through songs do they express such things as love or the need for others.

The Project

The Fulani of Central Africa project has one career missionary who works in the community and local hospital to help develop friendships and point people to Jesus. Opportunities abound for friendship evangelism and showing people of all ages the love of Jesus. The central part of the project is surrounded by many smaller villages. This is a newer project with a lot of adaptability. To learn more, view the project page for the Fulani of Central Africa
