HRH Duchess of Puntland, The Viscount of Garoowe
http://www.radical.net/blog/2015/08/the-horn-project-reaching-somalis-through-youtube/The Somali people are located in the Horn of Africa, our Secret Church 9 prayer focus. An unreached people group, there are nearly 17 million Somalis. War and famine has led many of them outside the borders of Somalia, yet they remain unreached with the good news of Jesus. Thankfully, there are some invaluable efforts currently underway to change this. But we’d like to add one.
We’re calling it The Horn Project. It’s creative, unconventional, and cutting edge. And it’s dependent on you. Here’s how it works:
Below is an animated video in the Somali language. In under ten minutes, the history of sin and the need for a blood sacrifice is traced all the way from Adam to Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God. Now it just needs to be viewed by Somali people.
This is where you come in. You can actually help us get this video in front of Somali people. In two weeks, Somali-speakers will be targeted with a Facebook add for this video. These adds will be much more effective if the video is highly viewed.
So we need you to view it. A lot.
And not just you, but your family, your church, your friends, your small group, and your co-workers, too. The more views it gets, the higher the chance it’s seen by Somali eyes.
We know you probably don’t speak Somali, and that’s okay. We simply need the number of views to increase. So over the course of the next two weeks, get to watching (and re-watching) and sharing. Post it on your Facebook page, tweet it from your Twitter account, pin it on your Pinterest board, and employ any other social media accounts at your disposal.
How many unsuspecting Somalis are going to view the video thinking it's an Islamic video?
