The Fulbe Fula Jalon [FULL-bay FOO-la ja-LONE] are a nomadic people originating in the Futa Jalon region flowing from Guinea into southwestern Mali. These Fulbe live in an area not easily accessible due to mountainous terrain and ravines flooded during rainy season. They often walk alone or with a couple of shepherds traveling miles a day through treacherous areas before finding suitable places for their herds. Recently, a worker was leading worship among a neighboring people and two Fula Jalon men appeared standing in the background. Later, the worker approached the men and discovered they were seeking truth. Praise the Lord these two men, wandering in the dark, heard the voice of One calling out to them.
“A voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Prepare the way for the Lord; make his paths straight! Every valley will be filled, and every mountain and hill will be made low; the crooked will become straight, the rough ways smooth, and everyone will see the salvation of God.” (Luke 3:4–6 HCSB)
