Bedouin, Gafsa in Tunisia

Bedouin society is organized on blood ties. The nuclear family forms the first level. Then comes a broader concept of family, uncles, cousins, etc. Beyond this are the clan and finally the tribe, with possible confederations of tribes. The honor and dishonor of an individual are shared by his family or his tribe, which can lead to large celebrations, or ruthless reprisals. The size of the tribes varies widely, from a few thousand to several hundred thousand. Each clan, tribe, or confederation recognizes the authority of a sheikh. This is not a leader, but a wise man. The camel is the most prestigious animal in a Bedouin herd. However, the camel has lost much of its value because of modern transportation, and this has been a factor in the gradual abandonment of traditional Bedouin lifestyles.

Ministry Obstacles

To dishonor ones' family, clan, or tribe is a serious offense, and following Jesus will surely invite dishonor.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for Gospel radio to widely penetrate the land of the Bedouin tribes, and pray the Bedouin will find these broadcasts and be given a desire to carefully listen. Pray they will understand the broadcasts.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Please pray for the few Gafsa Bedouin who are followers of Jesus Christ, that they will honor the Lord by living holy lives.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Bedouin tribes of Tunisia will see the importance of educating their children well. Pray also for pure drinking water, and for improved medical care.

Scripture Focus

"Now it will come about that In the last days, The mountain of the house of the Lord will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it." Isaiah 2:2
