Visit to the Bozo

Today the team felt called to visit a region among the Wassulu where people from one of several Bozo people groups live. The Bozo people groups are all “river people” as their lives and culture are intertwined with fishing along the Niger and its tributaries in several West African nations. Even their name, given in the Bambara language, means “straw house,” indicating a nomadic life. The Bozo hold fast to animistic beliefs wrapped in a veil of Islam.  Much can be learned about them elsewhere on the internet, such as on

Pray that as more and more Wassulu come to Christ, that the Lord will one day call out a Wassulu missionary to reach the neighboring people groups who though fairly close geographically, are culturally distant.
