Levantine Bedouin in Syria

If you saw the film "Lawrence of Arabia," then you have some familiarity with the Levantine Bedouins. They have their own dialect of Arabic and, like most Muslims, they are Sunnis. Most are still semi-nomadic, living in the desert during the rainy season and along its edges the rest of the year, raising sheep, goats and camels. Those who have become farmers are no longer called Bedouin. Their patriarchal life has changed little in hundreds of years.

Ministry Obstacles

Ministry obstacles include nomadism and political instability in Syria. Nomadism separates them from outside influences. Political instability makes it difficult for ideas to reach those, even those who need hope the most.

Outreach Ideas

Because some own cell phones and other equipment, radio and Bible aps are useful means of reaching them. Outreach from Arab churches would help and we need to pray that Arab churches will adopt the Levantine Bedouins to reach them for Christ.

Scripture Focus

"May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ."  2 Thessalonians 3:5

Scripture Prayer

May today’s people group find full understanding of the love of God.

Prayer Focus

Pray for Christian medical workers to work among them because their health needs are great. Pray that those in Israel would be won to follow Christ and carry the gospel to their kinsmen in Syria and Lebanon.
