The Tsudakar people were traditionally hat makers and vendors who are scattered across Dagestan in eight cities and a number of small villages.
The Tsudakar have been Muslims for more than 600 years. Like many followers of Islam, it is more than just a religion for them; it is part of their social and cultural identity. Though a very few Tsudakar have professed their faith in Christ, there is no church planting movement yet.
While Bible portions are available, the Tsudakar are still waiting for the New Testament and full Bible to be translated into their language.
"And I said: Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!" Isaiah 6:5
Pray that there will soon be a heart-felt understanding of personal sin and the need for God’s redemption among this people group.
Pray for the few Tsudakar people who have put their faith in Christ to be used to share the gospel with their families and friends. Pray for the Lord to open the hearts of the Tsudakar to his message of good news. Ask him to call and equip Bible translators who are willing to invest their lives and talents in this unreached people group. Ask the Lord to launch a church planting movement that will draw the Tsudakar into fellowship with him.
