Introduction / History

The Bena are also known as Yungur. Rocky, undulating savannah country is where the Bena people live. Missionaries trekked into the Bena area in the 1930s and introduced Jesus and His teaching. Today, most Bena people consider themselves Christians. But any Scripture they've ever read or heard came in another language, so Jesus has remained a foreigner.

Believers are concerned about divorce, substance abuse and the spread of HIV/AIDS. Couples need to discover their identity in Jesus and look to Him to meet their needs, allowing His life through them to slow the soaring divorce rate. Those caught in the trap of substance abuse and sexual promiscuity need to know the One who gives power to break free from these habits and satisfies the longings of love and acceptance that initiate destructive behaviors. Pray that God's Word will touch individuals, convincing them of the love, unconditional acceptance, new life, security and peace they can find only in Christ.
