Introduction / History
Jeri Kuo is a language spoken in Cote d'Ivoire. It is a dying language, meaning that as new generations emerge, the people are speaking other languages, especially Manding. The Jeri Kuo language will probably die out within 100 years.

What are their lives like?
Most of the people who speak Jeri Kuo are blacksmiths or leather workers.

What are their beliefs?
About half of the Jeri Kuo speakers are Muslim, and the other half cling to their traditional religion. Only a few have put their faith in Jesus Christ.

What are their needs?
Jeri Kuo speakers need to be able to adjust to speaking other languages, which sometimes means living on someone else's terms.

Prayer Points
* Pray for the Jeri Kuo speakers to find ways to earn a decent living and help their children to get the education they need to flourish in the 21st century.
* Pray for many to find the ways of Jesus to be far superior to the ways of Mohammed as they continue in this time of great change.
