There are some five million Fulbe Futa in the world, most of them hailing from Guinea, West Africa. Part of the Fulani people, the Fulbe Futa work to spread Islam throughout Africa, but some of them have come to Christ in Guinea and around the world.
Kady became a follower of Jesus, and eventually left Africa for New York City, where she takes regular prayer walks in her Bronx neighborhood that is home to approximately 5,000 Fulbe Futa people.
Although her family isolated her and some of her own people remain distant, God has emboldened her to love them.
During her prayer walks, Kady meets Muslins in restaurants or near their mosques, shares spiritual truths, and prays for them. Even though English is her third language, she started offering English classes for her community and has mobilized other New York Christians to interact with her people.
Mariama, a Fulbe Futa woman, was one of Kady’s English students. The two women also discovered that they were among the many distant relatives living in the Bronx. As Kady worked to build bridges to others, Mariama marveled at her approach.
“You Christians really love people,” Mariama said. “You do it from your heart, not to get something back. I’ve seen the way you bless others. You are God’s people.”
Pray for the Fulbe Futa people.
- Pray for the Holy Spirit to open the their “blinded eyes” and soften their “hardened hearts” to the Gospel (John 12:40).
- Pray that more Fulbe Futa become disciples of Christ, loving and training others to love Jesus and start churches.
- Pray for the laborers among the Fulbe Futa in the Bronx (Luke 10:2).
These pages are made available every day during the 30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World for those who cannot afford to purchase, or do not have access to the booklet.
