Lift Up Your Eyes, Look on the Fields

Today’s Unreached People Group(s)

Malawi's Yawo, living mainly to the south and southeast of Lake Malawi, have lower literacy rates compared to that of other ethnic groups in the country.  Although the Yawo are Muslim, many practice their traditional religion in parallel. The Yawo are a resistant people group; they have remained virtually unreached and have not responded to evangelism by the Chewa. The Yawo still do not have a complete copy of the Bible in their language but The Bible Society of Malawi hopes to have a translation printed soon.  Pray for spiritual barriers to be broken among the Yawo and for God to prepare hearts to be open to the Gospel.  Several international mission organizations are working among the Yawo; pray for God's blessing and effective methods of evangelism for those sharing God's Story with the Yawo.
