Koussountou of Togo

Introduction / History
Languages disappear, especially in the 21st century. Right now, many smaller African languages like that of the Bago-Koussountou people of Togo are on their way to extinction. Most likely no one will speak this language in 100 years.

Where are they located?
The Bago-Koussountou people only live in Togo, a small country in West Africa to the west of Nigeria.

What are their lives like?
There is almost no information about the Bago-Koussountou people, but most people in their part of central Togo are either farmers or cattle herders.

What are their beliefs?
Bago-Koussountou people are mainly Muslim. Their form of Islam allows for them to put some of their faith in the spirits of their ancestors and other spirit beings other than Allah, the God of Islam. A small number of them are Christians of some sort.

What are their needs?
Bago-Koussountou people need to adjust to merging with other people groups. Language and culture are key elements of people's identity, so this might be a hard time for those who speak this language.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Bago-Koussountou people will realize the need to put all their faith in the God of the Bible and Jesus Christ, the savior.
* Pray that this people group will have a spiritual hunger that will affect other peoples of Togo.
* Pray for a Disciple-Making movement to emerge among them and spread to other people groups in West Africa.
