Introduction / History

Standing in an unstable canoe dug out from a large log, the men are balanced attentively, with their spears slightly raised. Down the river are more canoes, and men are casting out the huge nets and working together to pull them back in again. The method of fishing isn't as important as the results, as being successful fishermen has always been a priority for the Tounia men.

Life in the village requires hard work and tough spirits. The people are kept busy from sun-up to sun-down making sure that there will always be food on the table. Without any modern conveniences, the people learn to depend on each other and on their own strength.


What Are Their Needs?

Only a handful of Christians exist among the Tounia, and the Gospel has yet to become really personal to them. In order for these Christians and the rest of the Tounia to experience the fullness of God's message, they need to hear the Gospel in their own language. They are so open to outside help and so eager to learn, it seems the time is right for the Lord's laborers to go in.


Prayer Points

Please pray that the Lord would raise up individuals who will live among the Tounia to teach them and share the Gospel with them in a way that will change lives.
