Tamajaq Tuareg in Niger

Unreached of the Day  10/22/2021

Tamajaq Tuareg in Niger

pronounced: TAM-uh-shek TWA-reg

The Tuareg are nomadic people and the principal inhabitants of the Saharan interior of North Africa, and are descended from the Berbers. For over two millennia, the Tuareg operated the trans-Saharan caravan trade connecting the great cities on the southern edge of the Sahara.

Ministry Obstacles

The Tuareg live in areas that may be difficult for Christian workers to enter, and to remain for any length of time.

Outreach Ideas

It may be feasible for traveling teams to take the Jesus film, God's Story video, and Gospel recordings to these people. Stories from Scripture can often powerfully communicate vital truths.

Scripture Focus

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,"  Ephesians 1:3

Scripture Prayer

Thank the Lord that He is giving His spiritual blessings to this people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the few believers among the Tuareg, that they may be strengthened in the faith, rooted and established in love, and may become a Godly influence on those around them. Pray for improved living conditions for the Tuareg, for better educational opportunities for their children, and for improved employment opportunities.
