Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

The Ik people live in villages on the tops of the mountains in northeast Uganda bordering Kenya and Sudan.  They have also been called “The Mountain People” or Tauso. They are often caught between their surrounding cattle raiding neighbors on all sides, Toposa to north, Turkhana to the east, and Karamojo to the west and south. The Ik are more agriculturally minded, do hunting in the surrounding forest, and are great wild honey collectors. They are a small tribe, maybe 25,000 with a unique language unlike any of their neighbours in East Africa. They have been unreached by the wonderful Gospel message and AIM is looking at partnering with SIL, Church of Uganda, and Pentecostal Assemblies of God to evangelize them.
