The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Burkina Faso

[Flag] Burkina Faso, "land of upright man" (formerly known as Upper Volta) is a landlocked plateau located in West Africa. Prone to drought and famine, many of the Burkinabe' (people of Burkina Faso) have had to migrate to other lands.

Defining itself as "revolutionary, democratic, anti-imperialist and secular", the 1987 military coup halted many of the extremes of the former regime (which was far less sympathetic to Christian churches and missionaries). The present climate is favorable to Christian outreach and aid programs.

Despite church growth, increased missionary exertions and greater responsiveness, there remain over 28 peoples without an effective witness; 13 of these are Muslim.
