Saudi-Najdi Arabs in Iraq live a harsh existence, having few permanent homes, living in portable black tents made from woven goat hair. Women 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.
Evangelism efforts among this unreached, unengaged people group are challenging due to the 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.
There is a need for medical and education teams to work among this nomadic people group to help them to help themselves.
"Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first. If you don’t repent, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches." Revelation 2:5
Pray for this people group to repent and to make Jesus Christ the first love of their lives.
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.
