About 20 % of the local population is Moslem. Many are Fulani, a nomadic Tribe spread widely across Sub-Saharan Africa. Many of them remain herders and live in the more remote and mountainous areas.
I had the pleasure of seeing Alhadji today. I have seen him on a number of occasions the last 9 months and one constant is he always has a big smile on his face and is most grateful for anything you do for him or his people. I had sensed he held a high position in his tribe and today he told me he is the prayer leader for his village. Getting to know people like Alhadji has been one of the wonderful things of our mission experience.
