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

 Unreached of the Day: Barma, Bagirmi of Chad

Barma, Bagirmi of Chad
The Barma (or Bagirmi) occupy the territory between N'Djamena (Chad's capitol) and Bousso, a small city farther south on the Chari River. In the 1700's, the Barmas ancestors ruled the Bagirmi Empire, a large area across Chad and into Sudan. At the end of the 1700's, the empire was attacked by Islamic Wadai armies and was never able to regain its political independence. The Barma have been followers of the Islamic faith since the sixteenth century. They are devout Muslims.

Ministry Obstacles
Chad is not hospitable to Christian workers, and the region is strongly Islamic.

Outreach Ideas
Pray for Christian radio to blanket the country of Chad, and that broadcasts in the Bagirmi language will be included.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There may very well be no followers of Jesus among this tribe at present. But pray for those the Lord is preparing to call to Himself. Pray that as they become Christ- followers they will live holy lives and will honor the Lord with their lives. Pray for healthy marriages among these new Christians.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for adequate rainfall for crops and for livestock. Pray also that parents will understand the need of schooling for the children.

Scripture Focus
"...that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no one else." 1 Kings 8:60
