Deuteronomy 9:6, NIV
Understand, then, that it is not because of your righteousness that the Lord your God is giving you this good land to possess, for you are a stiff-necked people.

It is not because unreached nations like the Chalas are righteous that God is reaching them, it’s because of His great love for them. Pray that they will realize this, and feel humbly honored as they accept Him as their new King.

Chala People of Ghana

by KC

How many people would there have to be before you would devote 15 years of your life to translating the Scriptures for them? Would you do that for a people group of only 4,200? Bible translators have to struggle with such questions in a country like Ghana where there are small people groups. Those producing radio broadcasts, the JESUS Film, and gospel recordings would ask the same questions. Only Global Recordings Network has produced materials in the language of the Chala people, and you can listen to them online. It is a much simpler and shorter process to produce gospel recordings than a Bible or a full-length movie.
The Chala people have their own traditional religion, and converting to one of the major world religions like Islam or Christianity is viewed as being like joining another tribe. Perhaps for that reason, the Chala people are only about five percent Christian, and only about one percent Evangelical. As far as we know there are no Muslims among them.

Pray for widespread distribution of gospel recordings in the Chala language. Pray that their hearts will be open to the great Name of Jesus, the only Savior. Pray for the Holy Spirit to move among Chala elders in such a way that they will see that one can follow Jesus and also be a faithful member of the Chala people.
