Ministry Obstacles
Reliance on printed material to reach the Waata may not be helpful, given the low literacy rate.

Outreach Ideas
The low literacy rate suggests that oral communication of the Gospel message may be most appropriate. Gospel recordings, films, and Scripture stories could be very effective. The mixture of Islam and animism in their belief system may indicate less dogmatism than might otherwise be true.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the few believers among the Waata, that they may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way, bearing fruit in every good work, and growing in the knowledge of God.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Waata may soon have improved educational opportunities for their children. Also pray that each individual in the tribe may hear the Gospel message in his mother tongue and presented in an understandable manner.
