Godoberi in Russia

How many people live in your town? Your town is probably more populous than the entire population of Godoberi people. The Godoberi people are Sunni Muslims, practicing a mix of Islam and traditional religion, and their main occupations include horticulture and cattle production. They come from an ancient people who settled in Dagestan eight or nine centuries before Christ.

Ministry Obstacles

There are no Jesus-following Godoberi recorded so far. Therefore, outreach will need to begin at the foundational level.

Outreach Ideas

The Godoberi speak their own language, Godoberi, but some speak Russian as well. The JESUS Film and the Old and New Testament are available in Russian. One method of outreach could be distributing Bibles and the JESUS Film.

Scripture Focus

"Enter into the rock and hide in the dust from before the terror of the Lord, and from the splendor of his majesty."  Isaiah 2:10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many from this people group to understand both God’s judgment and His majestic glory.

Prayer Focus

Pray that Jesus would reveal himself to them through dreams and visions. Along with horticulture, the Godoberi tend vines and beehives. In John 15:4, Jesus identifies himself as the Vine. Pray that the Godoberi people of mountainous Russia would learn of the one and only life-giving vine. Pray that God would call people to share the gospel with them and that a movement to Christ would begin and flourish.
