Nielim, Mjillem of Chad

Introduction / History
Near the river, the familiar scene is played again. Into the village march dozens of young boys wearing lion skins around their waists and hiding their faces behind bent arms. They've completed the survival test in the wilderness and learned about contact with the spirit world. Now, all the men of the village gather around and the boys begin to dance. It is a sign of transition, as they pass from childhood into adulthood. Once they have completed this process, they each return home and receive a new name. The initiation is now complete. This festival is repeated once every ten years in Niellim villages as boys learn the message of their fathers' tribal religion.

Later on, they might choose to nominally associate themselves with Islam or Bahai, yet they remain true to their traditional religion. The people of the Niellim villages are open to experimenting with different religions, even Christianity. The problem lies in the fact that the importance of commitment has not been stressed to them.

Prayer Points
* Please pray that God would raise up Christians who would be willing not only to share the Gospel with the Niellim, but also to exemplify the commitment that the Lord desires.
