Communities where He is least known

Gujarati

The Gujarati people number nearly 200,000, and primarily live in Nairobi, as well as along the coast. They originate from the state of Gujarat in India and are stereotypically considered to be good at business. In Kenya, roughly half of Gujaratis are Hindu, 13% are Muslim, and one third belong to other small Indian-based religions. While only 0.1% of this community call themselves Christians, an even smaller number (0.02%) are evangelicals. The Gujaratis’ close-knit family structures make it difficult for members to be open to new ideas from those outside their community.

 

East Pokot

Just under 800,000 Pokot live in Kenya. They are seminomadic and semi-pastoralists who herd cattle and sheep, and they live off the products of their stock. Wealth is measured by the number of cattle one possesses. They worship the god Tororot and other deities and communicate with these deities through prayers and sacrifices. The Pokot greatly fear death, as they do not believe in an afterlife. Many of their religious rituals involve warding off illnesses or affecting cures. Some Pokot, especially West Pokot, have become Christians, but the East Pokot communities living in Baringo County are still not reached by the gospel. This is due to many barriers, such as a lack of roads, poor transportation and the harsh climate. The majority of East Pokot have not had formal education and do not speak or read Kiswahili, the national language of Kenya. Most are unable to read or write the Pokot language. Even though the Bible is translated into Pokot, it is currently inaccessible to the East Pokot.

PRAYERS

1.

Pray for more workers to minister among communities where Jesus is least known, especially in the difficult areas of Kenya.

2.

Pray for more opportunities to partner with churches in Kenya to make disciples in least-reached communities (some groups are very resistant to the gospel).

3.

Pray for business workers to reach out and disciple Hindus in urban places.

4.

Pray for Kenyan churches to be mobilized and empowered to reach communities for Christ, both in Kenya and internationally.
