Arab, Bedouin in Jordan

Bedouin life is generally pastoral raising camels, sheep, goats, and cattle. Bedouins define themselves as members of tribes and families. They divide themselves into social classes by ancestry and profession. They are very hospitable, and follow a strict code of honor. Every member is expected to assume certain responsibilities, including children.

Ministry Obstacles

Mohammed was Bedouin, hence Islam’s first converts, explaining the deeply rooted Islamic culture of Bedouins. Men are more likely to blend in with Western influences, but women are bound by honor and tradition to remain within the family dwelling, lacking opportunity to hear of the Savior.

Outreach Ideas

Movements happen with abundant gospel sowing, so we ask God that we may sow seeds of the gospel in all ways, at all times, among Bedouin peoples. Since movements are based on the authority of Scripture, pray that believers reproduce obedience-based discipleship.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are no known followers of Christ among Bedouins in Jordan today, so pray that this soon changes.

Pray for the entire people group

* Pray that God will raise up many prayer teams to “adopt” the Bedouin Arabs of Jordan, praying until the blessing of knowing Jesus spreads from family to family. * Pray that God will bring forth His blessing - strengthening and healing families and communities among this unreached, unengaged people group.

Scripture Focus

'Again he says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people." And again, "Praise the Lord all you Gentiles, And let all the peoples praise Him." Romans 15:10-11
