Tuareg, Arabized in Niger

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
"Arabized" Tuareg are those who have adopted the Arabic language as their own. At least to this extent, they have become a part of Arab culture. Before French colonization, the Tuareg were organized into loose confederations, each consisting of a dozen or so tribes. Following the independence of African countries in the 1960s, Tuareg territory was artificially divided into modern nations: Niger, Mali, Algeria, Libya, and Burkina Faso. Each Tuareg clan is made up of several family groups, led by their collective chiefs.

Ministry Obstacles
The Tuareg tribes have strong tribal identity, and Islam is part of that self-identification.

Outreach Ideas
Perhaps African believers will be burdened to carry the message of Christ to the Tuareg tribes. Pray that tribal animosities will be overcome.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the followers of Jesus that will soon come forth from the Tuareg tribes: that the Lord will send qualified pastors and teachers, that they will be zealous to follow Christ, and they will live holy lives in the power of the Lord's Spirit.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray for the Tuareg tribes of Africa, that they will increasingly desire to know Jesus, the Son of God, deity. Pray He will reveal himself to them, and will send Christians to help them.

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