Introduction

The Eastern Maninka are the second largest people group in Guinea. They are the descendants of the Mande people of the once great Mali Empire. The empire amassed a great fortune taxing the trade of gold and ivory in the region. Before becoming a part of the empire, the Mande were credited with revolutionizing agriculture in the area; they discovered the use of millet, one of the most important grains in the diet of West Africans.


Ministry Obstacles

Almost no Eastern Maninka people have taken the step to follow Christ, perhaps partly because they think doing this will alienate their families and friends. Pray for workers who will try to win entire Maninka families to the Savior, so they can worship Him together.


Outreach Ideas

With permission from Maninka elders, people can show the JESUS Film in their communities and use it as a way to help them see what Christ can do for them. Pray for the effectiveness of the JESUS Film among the Maninka.


Prayer Focus

There are very few believers among the Eastern Maninkas, so pray for them to take seriously their role as Christ's ambassador to their people. * Ask the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers to the Eastern Maninka people.
* Ask the Holy Spirit to grant wisdom and favor to mission agencies focusing on the Maninka.
* Ask the Lord to bring forth a strong and growing Maninka church.
