Pila of Benin

Pray for the Pila of Benin

The Pila live mainly in the hot, dusty city of Djougou, Benin, where their king wields great power over the people and in villages around Djougou. The kings of people groups in Benin hold the religious standard of their people. For the Pila, this is a strict adherence to their mix of Islam and African traditional religion. The Pila have been resistant to the message of Jesus Christ. Although there are Christians of other ethnicities in Djougou, typically the Pila do not intermingle with them. A mission organization called SIM is finalizing the page layout for the entire Bible in Yom (the language spoken by the Pila), and the team is recording the New Testament for an organization called Faith Comes By Hearing. They are planning radio broadcasts in Yom with follow up for seekers.

Prayer Requests

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
