Rev. Tim and Beth Heiney

Beth home schools their two youngest children, Kathryn and Andrea. They also have two sons: Joel, who attends Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich., and Jonathan, who is attending high school in Kansas City, Kan.

The Maninka are a numerous and widespread people group located throughout many West African countries. They are the second largest ethnic group in Guinea with a population of approximately two million.

Most Maninka are Muslims, but many continue to practice their traditional or animistic beliefs. The Maninka are considered an un-reached people with Maninka Christian believers comprising less than one percent of the total population.
