Tigre, Eritrean in Eritrea

The population of Eritrea is equally divided between Christian (Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Lutheran Protestants) and Muslim religions. The largest Muslim group is the Tigre, the only Eritrean or Ethiopian Semitic people which is not Orthodox. They are related to the Christian Tigrinya, but are culturally distant from them.

Ministry Obstacles

Cultural barriers are high. These can be overcome, but it usually requires much time.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for Tigre believers to become effective and fruitful in sowing God's Word among their own families and communities to fuel a movement of God's blessings spreading from household to household.

Pray for the followers of Christ

The few Tigre believers live in trying circumstances among their Muslim family and friends. Pray for them. Pray they will keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Tigre people will have sufficient food in an area that often experiences famine. Pray for rain, and pray for improved living conditions.

"Give thanks to the Lord, call on His Name; make known among the nations what He has done." Psalm 105:1
