The Kagoro of Mali


Kagoro in Mali

The majority of the Kagoro are animists, believing that non-human objects have spirits. In addition, they practice ancestor worship, and rites are celebrated to worship them. The dead are appeased with offerings of millet flour and water. The Kagoro believe that sometimes their ancestors may take the form of animals or even vegetables! Illiteracy is a major problem among the Kagoro. Some Islamic schools have been established, but most villages fail to educate their children because their help is needed on the farm.

Ministry Obstacles
Mali is not a hospitable region for Christian workers. Creative means of access from outsiders are needed.

Outreach Ideas
A low literacy rate suggests the need for oral communication of the Gospel message. Stories from Scripture, and Gospel recordings would be very helpful.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may be a few followers of Christ among the Kagoro community; pray they will be nurtured by the Spirit of Jesus, and will become strong in the faith. Pray they will be joyful always, praying continually, and giving thanks in all circumstances.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Kagoro will be set free from the bondage of worshiping created things. Pray also for improved living conditions, and for good schools for the children.

Scripture Focus
“The people who walk in darkness, will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them.” Isaiah 9:2
