The land of Mamuro, two days’ journey east from the point where the two big rivers meet, is a land very deep in tradition and fetish practices. The gods of the land, Bachuso and Isiba, are believed to be very strong and hold sway in the lives of the natives.
When Wero flees the land of Mamuro for dear life, she travels to Salem where she finds refuge and narrates her story. This prompts Sokura to set off on a Mission to Mamuro to preach the good news of Yahweh, the God of Salem. However, he soon comes in conflict with other people who have come to Mamuro on mission as well but for selfish motives.
Mission to Mamuro is a call to missions. It focuses on the bondage of ignorance, the plight of the unreached people and the lukewarm attitude of the church. It is a reminder that the unreached people will one day be reached, but the real question is through whom and with what?
