The Bederia are mixed-race Bedouins, in Kordofan, one of the numerous Baggara tribes of northern Sudan. The Baggara, also known as Shuwa Arabs, are a nomadic Bedouin people inhabiting Africa between Lake Chad and the Nile. They are cattle-herding Arabs, although sometimes mixed with indigenous tribes.
The Bederia tribe lives in an area difficult for outsiders to access. They also likely have a low literacy rate.
Christians need to care for the physical and material needs of these people. Trust and friendship are needed.
"And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
Pray for today’s people group to come to understand that salvation is found only in Jesus Christ and in no other religion.
Even though there may be no followers of Jesus today among the Bederia tribe, pray for those that will soon be led to Christ. Pray they will faithfully fellowship together, and that pastors and teachers will be provided. Pray for Scripture availability. Pray for the Bederia tribe to be able to care for their families, for good water supplies and adequate food and housing. Pray for peace in Sudan.
