Najdi Arabs in Iraq

pronounced: NADZH-dee

Saudi-Najdi Arabs in Iraq live a harsh existence, having few permanent homes, living in portable black tents made from woven goat hair. Woman do most of the work, while men socialize and make plans for the group. Their tents are their main possessions, and animals are very important to their nomadic lifestyle.

Ministry Obstacles

Evangelism efforts among this unreached, unengaged people group are challenging due to harsh and unsettled nature of their lifestyle. There is a great need for missionaries who are able to endure difficult desert conditions so they can have regular contact with these nomads.

Outreach Ideas

There is a need for medical and education teams to work among this nomadic people group to help them to help themselves.

Prayer Items

There are no known followers of Christ within this group. * Simple things grow, simple things multiply. Pray for simple church and small groups to become a reality among Najdi Arabs in Iraq. * Pray that God will overthrow the spiritual forces of darkness that oppose the spread of His gospel and ask God to deliver the families and communities within this people group from fears that hinder them from embracing His blessing of salvation.

Scripture Focus

"How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?" Romans 10:14-15
