Fulfulde, Borgu in Canada

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

In deciding which immigrants to admit from developing countries, Canada has favored those with a good education and professional skills. Even then, there are language barriers, and Fulani people who arrive in Canada are often under-employed because of a lack of English language skills.

Though they usually live a more prosperous life than they did in West Africa, Fulanis must adjust to many changes in Canada. Personal relationships are different. Many of them must adjust to having a spouse in a different continent, and living with a different set of social expectations. Africans assume that the group rises or falls together, but in the West they must adjust to an individualistic culture. Fulanis are among the largest people group in West Africa, but in Canada, they are small in number. They no longer have the dominant cultural position they enjoyed in places like Nigeria.

Ministry Obstacles
As folk Muslims, Fulani have a pragmatic view of the spirit world; you perform whatever ritual is needed to get your needs met. There is little or no loyalty to any given spirit being outside of what you can get from them. It is difficult for such people to understand that they must be completely loyal to Jesus Christ.

Outreach Ideas
Perhaps Canadian believers will commit to pray for the many Muslim people groups in their country, and will take steps to minister to them.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are some Fulani people who follow Christ in Canada. Pray that they will shine His light in such a way that other West Africans will be attracted to Him. Pray for a discipleship making movement among West Africans to form in Canada.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for Fulani leaders to have dreams and visions of the risen and victorious Christ that will lead them to follow Him and no other.
* Pray for a people movement to Christ among the Fulani.

Scripture Focus
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”
