Fulani, Pulaar in Senegal

The Pulaar are known as the defenders of the Muslim faith and proudly acknowledge themselves as the first black Africans to convert to Islam. Islamic tradition, as well as the climate, influences clothing styles. Generally, men wear long flowing cloaks called booboos with turbans or Islamic-style skullcaps. The women commonly wear long, flowing dresses also called booboos.

Ministry Obstacles

These people have a strong commitment to their current faith, and have not been generally open to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the past.

Outreach Ideas

Sustained prayer for the Pulaar is needed. Stories from Scripture coupled with Gospel films and recordings may communicate effectively.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are a few hundred believers among the Pulaar. Pray for these and for others that will eventually find Christ. Pray they will put on the full armor of God, including the shield of faith. Pray also for discipling leading to maturity for these believers, and for rapid multiplication of home groups.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for these people to increasingly understand that Jesus is deity, the Son of God, and that they will desire to know him and follow him.

Scripture Focus

"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest." Matthew 9:37-38
