    With a population of more than 500, their economic activities include nomadic pastoralists and farming, while some are doing small scale business. The village is known for general worship of idols under the control of demonic spirits, in which, witchdoctors are the mediums. Some common idols they worship are the stars, moon, and charms. The villagers believe these idols are the source of life and protection.

    Church Progress:

    As a result of the evangelizing and witnessing by Missionary Dominic Ekuom Ekiru, the church enrollment is increasing rapidly. Approximately 40 adults, 20 youth, and 40 children have given their lives to Christ and worship together regularly in the mother church.
