Khisa in Côte d'Ivoire

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Khisa is an endangered language. Most likely no one will be speaking it in 100 years.

Where are they located?
Khisa speakers live in Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa.

What are their lives like?
Though Cote d'Ivoire is fairly advanced by West African standards, there is still a need for medical care, potable water in every home, and electricity.

What are their beliefs?
Khisa speakers are 100 Sunni Muslim, but their version of this religion is tainted by the use of traditional religion. Instead of depending on Allah, the god of Islam, they depend on local spirit-beings.

What are their needs?
Khisa speakers desperately need to allow Jesus Christ into their lives so He can transform their communities and provide them with abundant life.

Prayer Points
* Khisa speakers need running potable water in their homes, and electricity. They need adequate roads to travel outside their communities.
* This people group needs missionaries who will share Christ using appropriate music and drama.
* Khisa speakers need open hearts that will respond to the only savior, Jesus Christ.
* Pray for a Disciple-Making movement among this people group.
* Pray for translation of the Bible to begin in this people group's primary language.
* Pray for the availability of the Jesus Film in the primary language of this people.
