A MINISTRY OF AFRICA INLAND MISSION INTERNATIONAL
AIM GLOBAL

Just a Start

They were an unreached tribe. Christians went and shared the good news, and a small group of believers began gathering. For a while, there were baptisms and even a small church. But the missionaries and church outreach workers have all left. More are needed in order to complete this good work that began and then halted. Pray for the Lord of the harvest to send them.

May They Grow

Please pray that the Ndengereko who have come to faith in Christ will continue to grow in their understanding of the word of God. Pray that they will gather faithfully for worship every week. Pray that they may share the gospel with their neighbors. Pray that other Christians from different tribes may live among the Ndengereko and be proactive in sharing the gospel with them. Pray for a strong, reproducing church.

Multiply and Grow Strong

Please pray that the Ndengereko believers and churches would multiply and grow strong, and that God would send more evangelists, pastors and missionaries to carry the good news of Christ to them.

Other Believers

Pray for the Ndengereko to meet believers from other tribes who share with them the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Pray that they recognize it is the truth and believe in Him.

Similar Languages

The Ndengereko and the M people have languages that are similar. Pray that believers from the M tribe will share the gospel of Christ with the Ndengereko, and that many new churches will be planted through their witness.

Light of Christ

Please pray for this Muslim majority people, who drove missionaries away with violence in the past. Pray that the light of Christ would penetrate their darkness and they would recognize the Savior of the world, the eternal King, from whom no deed is hidden and to whom all will give an account.

Jesus the Savior

Please pray that the Holy Spirit will reveal to the Ndengereko at Christmas time that Jesus is the Christ, the Savior of the World, sent to liberate the captives and give sight to the blind.

Becoming Strong

Please pray for the Ndengereko of Tanzania to welcome and receive Christians who want to share the gospel with them, and pray that the few churches will become strong in the Word of God, in evangelism, and in discipleship. Pray for more churches to be planted to the glory of God.

Growing and Planting

The Ndengereko are a people group who have a lot of contact with other tribes and who are growing in their willingness to consider Christianity instead of blindly following Islam. Please pray for the faithful African pastor who shepherds the Ndengereko church in a main village, that the Lord will enable his congregation to grow and to plant other churches in villages that still need the gospel.

A Christ-Centered Church

Please pray for a movement of the Holy Spirit among the Ndengereko people to bring them to faith in Christ, and that they might have a reproducing, indigenous, Christ-centered church.

Move Mightily

A church has been planted among the Ndengereko, and there is a great need for more. Please pray that the Lord will move mightily by the Holy Spirit to bring the Ndengereko people to faith in Christ and that each village will have a church for Ndengereko believers to attend.

More Needed

Please pray that God will raise up more Christians to go live among the Ndengereko and share the gospel with them. Praise the Lord for several recent baptisms, and for a faithful Tanzanian evangelist who has stayed with the Ndengereko for several years although the western missionaries left. Praise God for the small church that has begun and is continuing on.

More To Share the Gospel

Praise the Lord for those Ndengereko who have come to know Christ. Please pray that the Lord will send more Christians to live among them and share the gospel. Pray the Lord of the harvest to send labourers to the Ndengereko.

Gentle and Humble

Please pray for the Ndengereko to be delivered from their sins and come in faith to the Saviour. Pray that the Christians who go to live among them and share the gospel will be protected from harm. Pray that light will penetrate their darkness and they will come to know the Saviour who is “gentle and humble of heart,” and that they will become like Him.

Light of the World

Please pray that the darkness and hardness of heart that is keeping Ndengereko people captive to Satan will be illuminated by Jesus, the light of the world. Pray that those who believe in Him will no longer walk in darkness but will walk in the light of life, and that others will come to know Him too.

Free Indeed

May the Spirit penetrate the hearts of the Ndengereko, bringing them into adoption, freeing them from being slaves to bondage, setting them free from fear, and allowing them to cry out, “Abba, Father.”

Ambassadors Needed

Pray that the Spirit will raise up Christians to take the Word of God to the Ndengereko, who are still largely Muslim. Pray for the Lord to send His ambassadors and representatives to love them and share the gospel. Pray that their hearts will be ready to receive it and bear fruit.

Common Violence

Violence is common in the Ndengereko tribe, and security in some villages is minimal. Please pray that the gospel will spread rapidly among the Ndengereko people, and that the Prince of peace will change that culture from lawlessness to dignity and respect.

Through Them

Pray that through the witness of those who have come to faith in Christ, many more Ndengereko will be saved. Pray that they will continue to stand firm and not return to the practice of Islam.

A Special Campaign

Praise the Lord for two new godly evangelists who are providing leadership to the Ndengereko believers. Praise Him that our Nigerian teammates, who still work on the coast, have been active in a campaign that saw every household in the village receive a Swahili/Arabic New Testament. Praise the Lord that the believers are not discouraged, that they have not returned to their old lives now that they have found Jesus! Pray that the church wouldn’t lose their saltiness. That their light would shine before the community, so that they may see their good works and give glory to the Father who is in heaven.

Losing Language

The Ndengereko are gradually losing their distinctive language and culture as they mingle and mix with the coastal Swahili of Tanzania. As they loosen old traditions and ties, may they acquire new loyalties and a new culture by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Singing His Songs

The Ndengereko believers created Scripture songs from the earliest days of their faith. Pray they will continue to learn Scripture, compose songs, and that those songs will spread far and wide and bring others to faith in Christ.

Crossing Cultures for Jesus

Pray that the local churches in the Ndengereko villages are convicted and equipped to speak boldly about their faith to their Muslim neighbors who are the local Ndengereko people. The churches are filled with people from other tribes, that have been sent to work in those places. We pray that they would see the Great Commission is for them. We pray that the Ndengereko believers would also have the courage to stand boldly, publicly acknowledging faith in Christ as their Savior.

The Church as a Light in a Muslim community

Pray for the church in Ruaruke. The Lord continues to bless them with marriages, births, a working well, and community projects starting up. Pray that they would be a light and that they would use these blessings to bless their neighbors.

Pray for churches that are engaging the Ndengereko

Rejoice that there are 3 local churches engaging the Ndengereko in one village. Pray for their market evangelism campaigns, that they would glorify God and draw the seekers to them. Pray for unity in the churches. One church in particular is struggling with internal conflicts that have the potential to divide the church.

Pray for blessings over the Ndengereko

Would you pray Psalm 67 with us over the Ndengereko… (words changed for prayer)
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among the Ndengereko. Let the Ndengereko praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! Let the Ndengereko be glad and sing for joy, for you judge the Ndengereko with equity and guide the nations upon earth. Let the Ndengereko praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! The earth has yielded its increase; God, our God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; let all the ends of the earth fear him!

Update on The Ndengereko of Tanzania

Ramadan Day 24
Ask God to mobilize churches in Tanzania and Kenya to reach out to their Mu$lim neighbors and to send workers among Mu$lim tribes like the Ndengereko. Christians in East Africa have suffered at the hands of Mu$lim extremists. Pray God would give them grace to pray, “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” (Acts 4:29-30)

Ramadan Day 8
Pray for the few local believers and other Christians who have contact with the Ndengereko, that they would be filled with the Holy Spirit and speak the word of God with boldness.
