Introduction / History

The Godoberi are native to Dagestan. They settled this area eight or nine centuries before Christ. At the end of the 14th century they were both Christian and animistic. Soon after they converted to Islam. They speak their own language. Their primary occupation is agriculture, horticulture and cattle breeding. They also tend vinyards and beehives. They have a patriarichal society and large families. The Godaberi have very rich folklore and many legends about their national heroes and about how their villages were created.


What are Their Beliefs?

Their religion is Muslim-Sunnite and animism. They also worship nature.


Prayer Points

* Beseech the Lord of the Harvest to send missionaries to Daghestan as well as translators, that the people may not only be able to hear the Good News, but read it also, in their own language.
* Pray that God would open their eyes so that they would worship the Creator rather than the creation!
* Pray for creative and relevant approaches to the Godaberi with the Gospel.
