Somali of Somalia

The coming of Arab traders to the area of Somalia in the 10th century significantly shaped much of modern Somali culture. The vast majority of Somalis converted to Islam at that time. Tribal and political rivalries continue to afflict the Somali people into the 21st century as no central government has managed to unite the disparate and sometimes hostile tribes.

Ministry Obstacles

Somalia is a dangerous place to live and work, unstable.

Outreach Ideas

Christians need to help with the material and physical needs of the Somalis.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are a few followers of Christ among the Somalis; they need sustained prayer. Pray they will submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for peace for the peoples of Somalia, and for a government that can bring stability and safety.
