The Tuareg are descended from Berbers in the region that is now Libya, and also from ancient Saharan peoples. Following the independence of African countries in the 1960s, Tuareg territory was artificially divided into modern nations: Niger, Mali, Algeria, Libya, and Burkina Faso. The Tuareg adopted camel nomadism, along with its distinctive form of social organization, from camel-herding Arabs about two thousand years ago.

Ministry Obstacles

Algeria does not provide a welcome to Christian workers, as such. Innovative ideas for access are needed.


Outreach Ideas

Pray for the few existing believers to become mature in the faith, and be given a heart to share the Gospel message with their friends.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the few Christian believers among the Tuareg, that they will live exemplary lives and reveal the Lord's character through his Spirit.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for improved living conditions for the Tuareg, and for good schools for their children so they can be well prepared to live in the 21st century.
