"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

  Unreached of the Day: Rashaida of Sudan

Rashaida of Sudan
The Rashaida are a Bedouin people populating either side of the Red Sea, coming from a major tribe in mainland Arabia about 150 years ago. They are a nomadic people living in tents made of goatskins. They are herdsmen, breeding primarily goats and sheep. Since they are largely illiterate, they memorize in great detail the pedigree of their animals, keeping mental records of their herds over seven or eight preceding generations of the flock.

Ministry Obstacles
A nomadic lifestyle makes it especially difficult to build relationships with people.

Outreach Ideas
The Gospel message needs to come to these illiterate people orally, using stories from Scripture, videos, recordings and similar means. Bridges of friendship need to be built.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may be a few followers of Christ among the Rashaida community. Pray for these people, and for the new believers that will soon emerge. Pray they in all things will grow up into Him who is the Head, Christ.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Rashaida families will be able to live peaceful lives. Pray for stability in Sudan.

"But indeed, as I live, all the earth will be filled with the glory of the Lord." Numbers 14:21
