Daily Topic for February 23, 2011
We know that everyone has sinned and falls short of the glory of God. So what do we do about it? Those of us who are part of God’s Kingdom have the chance to do something about it. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we can change. But what about those like the Gey people who rely on obedience to the teachings of Mohammed to enter God’s Kingdom? They, like many other unreached people groups, are choosing the wide road that leads to destruction.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to do a new work in the hearts of the Gey Fulbe, so that they can be cleaned and made pure by His power.
The Gey herdsmen led the cattle north through the hot grasslands of northern Cameroon. These young men had left their villages as soon as the dry season had begun. They would continue wandering with their cattle herds until the rainy season returned. At night the Gey Fulbe gather around campfires and tell stories, for this has always been a favorite past time of this people group. Many of the stories are about Mohammed, the founder of Islam, for the Gey have never heard of the saving work of Jesus Christ.
The Gey Fulbe have lived in the grasslands of northern Cameroon for as long as anyone can remember. They were one of the first black African tribes to convert to Islam. Today the Gey are 98 percent Muslim. There are no known followers of Christ among them. The Gey are expert story-tellers. Many of their stories are like parables that teach moral lessons.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray that God would raise up faithful workers to tell the Gey Fulbe about Jesus Christ, the master story teller. Ask the Lord to break the hold that Islam has on this people group. Pray for someone to transmit gospel radio broadcasts in the Gey language. Pray that soon the Gey will learn and tell the parables of Jesus Christ.
