Ongamo, Ngasa of Tanzania

Introduction / History
Their primary language of the Ngasa Ongamo people is Machame.

Where are they located?
The Ngasa Ongamo people only live in the East Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania.

What are their lives like?
Residents of the East Kilimanjaro region are mostly farmers. Tanzania is one of the world's poorest nations.

What are their beliefs?
The primary religion practiced by the Ngasa Ongamo is ethnic religion. Ethnic religion is deeply rooted in a people's ethnic identity and conversion essentially equates to cultural assimilation. The printed Bible, JESUS Film, and GRN audio resources are available in the Machame language.

What are their needs?
Widespread systemic poverty affects the Ngaso Ongamo people. They require help to establish and maintain schools, medical clinics, drinking water, and sanitation facilities. Although Scripture resources are available in their language, they need someone to tell them about the savior. Will it be you, or someone you know?

Prayer Points
* The Church in Tanzania is shallow and must be discipled to reach its own people.
* Health issues must be addressed if Ngasa Ongamo people are to live long enough to experience an abundant life.
* Pray for broken intercessors who will kneel before heaven's throne for as long as it takes to see this people group embrace the savior.
