With a population of more than 500, their economic activities include nomadic pastoralists and farming, while some are doing small scale business in Nabwelpus village. The village is known for general worship of idols under the control of demonic spirits in which the witch doctors are the mediums. Some common idols they worship in the area are the stars, moon, and charms. The villagers believe in them as the source of life and protection.
As a result of the evangelizing and witnessing by missionary Dominic Ekuom Ekiru, the church members and enrollment are increasing rapidly. A number of 80 adults have given their lives to Christ and worship together regularly. The number of born again youth is 46 and Sunday school is 57 children in total.
