Kababish of Sudan

Kababish of Sudan

The Kababish are a loose tribal confederation of Arabic people of mixed origins, who live in a region of desert scrubland. The term "Kababish" is usually used to describe anybody who is half Arabic and half black. They are traditionally Muslim but do not strictly follow the rules of Islam due to their harsh desert lifestyle. While the Kababish men move across the desert with their camel herds, the women and children stay home.

Ministry Obstacles

Access to these people is quite difficult. Many are nomadic, and Sudan is harsh.

Outreach Ideas

Much prayer is needed for the Kababish Muslims. Pray the Lord will give them hearts to hear the good news of Jesus. Spiritual things are spiritually discerned or understood.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are only a few believers in Jesus among the Kababish people. Pray for them as they live in a difficult environment, both physically and spiritually. Pray their faith will not only be protected but grow. Pray they will be zealous to learn about Christ and his teachings, and follow him faithfully.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for peace in Sudan, and for the Kababish people to be able to care for their families. Pray for adequate water for themselves and their livestock, and for sufficient food.
