Enslaved No More

In Mauritania, the last nation on Earth to declare slavery illegal, slavery persists. One group of Muslims enslaved another group of Muslims there until many slaves fled their masters in 1989. Some came to the U.S.

Today, more than 20,000 Fuuta Tooro live in more than 20 U.S. cities. While they may be hard to find, when you do, they will overwhelm you with hospitality and kindness while also watching you with keen eyes to see the motives behind your words and actions.

When strangers reach out, many are suspicious. They wonder, “What are your secret plans? Why do you want to know more about the Fulani?”

Others are curious and desire to know more about God. 

Abdul, for example, is trying to study God’s Word while struggling to support himself. Many Fulani work 60 to 90 hours a week to support their families in West Africa, suffering from COVID and other hardships. 

“I would love to continue studying the Bible,” said Abdul. “But I know if I have to think about where I’m going to live or work, I won’t focus on what I’m learning.”

Pray that as Fuuta Tooro give their lives to provide for their families, they won’t work so much that they miss out on spending time with God, which yields eternal results.

  • May God bring more laborers to the harvest of Fulani in America, so their families overseas may also have a relationship with Jesus.
  • May Fulani men, seeking to know the Lord, be directed to spend more time with God and not be overly anxious about their work.
  • Ask God to deliver Fulani, who still live under slavery in Mauritania.
