Jude 24-25, RSV
Now to him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you without blemish before the presence of his glory with rejoicing, to the only God, our savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen!

Pray that God will keep the Nigerian Fulani from falling and that he will present them without blemish before the presence of His glory. Pray that they will rejoice as they bask in His glory, dominion, and authority before their neighbors. In this way, it will be clear that the Lord reigns among the Fulbe peoples!—Bob Rutz

Nigerian Fulani

by WK

(These events are hypothetical.)
Cows grazed in a field in Nigeria as a Fulani herder gazed at the lush grass on the other side of a wooden fence. There was a sign nailed to the fence, but the herder was not able to read. The herder climbed over the fence. Here was enough grass to feed his cows for weeks. There was a man standing in the distance, who turned to face him. “Get off my land!” The man fired a rifle at the herder. The shot missed and the Fulani herder scrambled back over the fence and rejoined his herd of cows.
The Fulani of Nigeria don’t value education, so illiteracy is a serious problem among them. Nigerian government officials have fenced in what had been Fulani land to create cattle ranches. Since then there have been some violent encounters between the ranchers and the nomadic herders because the herders can’t read the “No Trespassing” signs.
Most Nigerian Fulani are Muslims. There are few, if any, followers of Jesus Christ among them.

Pray that the gospel will be preached to this people group in a format they can access, such as radio. May the Nigerian Fulani come to see the value of education. Ask God to lead Christian teachers to reach out to this people group. Such people can teach reading, writing, and the message of salvation in the local language.
