Shuwa Arabs in Chad

Shuwa Arabs in Chad

Chad is one of the poorest and most illiterate countries of the world. The Arabs of Chad are mostly nomadic, but some live in the villages and towns. The language of the Arabs is the main language of communication in the country, which makes it especially important to share the gospel with Arabs. Although Arabs are respected by the Chad government because of their wealth in animals, they don't play a very large role in Chad's political arena.

Ministry Obstacles

Chad is a difficult country to access, and the economy operates on a subsistence level. Hardy workers are needed to carry the gospel into this region.

Outreach Ideas

Nigerian believers may be able to carry the gospel northeast to the Shuwa Arabs.

Scripture Focus

"When the earth quakes and its people live in turmoil, I am the one who keeps its foundations firm."  Psalm 75:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many from today’s people group will allow Him to be their firm foundation in times of trouble.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the few Arab believers in Chad, that they will be faithful witnesses to family and friends, wise as serpents but harmless as doves. Pray for the Arabs of Chad, that they will be able to provide adequately for the needs of their families.
