Introduction

The Sere are a small people group with their own language. They live in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a nation noted for violence and turmoil.


Ministry Obstacles

There is often a threat of roaming militias and violent criminals in this predominantly rural nation. Such a situation makes it very difficult for believers to move about and share the good news. There are no Christian materials in the Sere language, so someone will need to start at the beginning.


Outreach Ideas

Believers who are called to take Christ to the Sere people can do so, but they must be willing to stay for as long as it takes to establish a movement. They can use skits and songs, both of which are popular in this part of the world where there are few outside distractions.


Prayer Focus

There are very few believers among the Sere people. Pray that they would be filled with the fruit and the power of the Holy Spirit. Pray that they would clearly hear God's voice and be willing to obey Him. Pray for anointed workers who are skilled in writing appropriate music and skits that can explain the life of Jesus to the Sere people. Pray for the church to flourish among them.
