Urdu in Oman

The term "Urdu" does not adequately describe the Urdu people as such, but is merely a language distinction. Urdu-speaking Muslims are not an ethnic group in a strict sense, but are rather a collection of ethnic groups which have been widely dispersed geographically. They possess a sense of "group identity" based on language, cultural and historical factors. A majority of Urdu speakers live in Pakistan and the northern states of India. Urdu speakers are descendants of immigrants who were the "cream of society" in their own countries. Some are descendants of Arab merchants and soldiers. Others descended from Turks, Persians, and Pashtuns. Although the Urdu are all Muslims, this is no longer a strongly unifying factor. Since entire communities tended to migrate together, different Islamic sects of Urdu speakers are found in different countries.

Ministry Obstacles

Spiritual opposition can be expected as Jesus is presented to people. Workers should be prepared but not intimidated by this.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps the Urdu will learn of the availability of Jesus film downloads from the web, as well as scripture and other resources. Please pray they will desire to download and use these resources.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are probably no followers today of Jesus among the Urdu speakers of Oman. Please pray the Lord will begin stirring the hearts of these people to find out more about Isa (Jesus), as he is known in the Koran. Pray for a curiosity so that when the Gospel comes it will be welcomed.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Please pray Urdu-speaking Muslims in all countries of residence will gain an interest in knowing and serving Jesus the Messiah.

Scripture Focus

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedlingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen." Ephesians 3:20-21

Bereber, Rifeño in Marruecos

La palabra "rif" es una palabra árabe que significa "el borde de la superficie cultivada". Los shilha norte de Argelia y Marruecos, conocido como los "bereberes rif," son numerosas tribus de personas resistentes que luchan por lograr una existencia en las laderas duras y accidentadas de las montañas Rif. Los bereberes son nativos del norte de África al oeste del río Nilo, con la mayor concentración en Marruecos.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Marruecos es muy difícil para que entren los obreros cristianos. Los enfoques creativos son necesarios.

Ideas para el Ministerio

La película Jesús, el video la Historia de Dios y la radio evangélica están disponibles en la lengua de los bereberes rif. Ore por los obreros.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

El Señor está construyendo su iglesia entre los bereberes. Ore para que los creyentes sean enseñados correctamente en las Escrituras, que comprendan plenamente el Evangelio de la gracia, y lleguen a ser maduros y establecidos en la fe.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore parabque el Señor se revele de manera adecuada a los bereberes, incluyendo tal vez los sueños y visiones. Ore para que a los bereberes se les de un corazón que le busque.

Texto Bíblico

"Y es necesario que el evangelio sea predicado antes a todas las naciones." Marcos 13:10

Urdu in 오만

Urdu라는 단어는 Urdu민족을 정의하기에는 알맞지 않으며, 단지 사용하는 언어의 차이를 나타냅니다. Urdu언어를 말하는 무슬림들이 민족으로 구분되지는 않지만, 여러 지역으로 퍼저나간 민족들의 집합체로 볼 수 있습니다. 그들은 문화적, 역사적인 요인들에 바탕을 둔 집단 정체성을 가지고 있습니다. Urdu언어를 사용하는 후손들은 파키스탄과 인도의 북쪽에 대부분 살고 있습니다. 이 사람들은 자기의 본국에서의 사교계에서 화려하게 활동하였지만, 이후에는 이민자로 살았던 사람들의 후손들입니다. 어떤 사람들은 아랍 상인들과 군인들의 후예입니다. 또한 어떤 사람들은 터키인, 페르시아인, 파슈툰 사람의 후손이기도 합니다. 모든 Urdu인들이 무슬림이기도 하지만 이제는 더이상 이들을 강력하게 연합시키는 요소가 없습니다. 모든 지역 공동체들이 이주하는 경향이 있고, 여러 다른 나라들에 걸쳐 Urdu언어를 사용하는 사람들이 여러가지 다른 이슬람 종파에 속해있기 때문입니다.

선교 장애 요인

예수님이 전해질때에 영적인 저항이 있을수 있습니다. 사역자들이 이것을 겁내는 것이 아니라, 미리 준비되어야합니다.

전도 방법 제안

어쩌면 Urdu인들이 예수영화가 인터넷으로 부터 다운로드 되고 성경과 여러 자원들이 있다는것을 알게 될 수도 있습니다. 이들이 이 자료들을 다운로드 받고 사용할 수 있게 되기를 기도해주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Oman에 있는 Urdu언어를 말하는 사람들 가운데 아직 예수님을 따르는 자가 단 한명도 없을지도 모릅니다. 주님께서 이들의 마음을 움직이셔서 코란에 Isa라고 나와있는 예수님에 대해 알고자 하는 마음을 가질 수 있도록 기도해주심시오. 그들 마음에 호기심이 생겨 복음이 전해질때에 받아들일 수 있도록 기도해주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Urdu언어를 사용하는 나라에 거주하는 모든 무슬림들이 메시아 예수님을 알고 섬기는 것에 대해 관심을 갖게 되기를 기도해주십시오.

성경 말씀

우리 가운데서 역사하시는 능력대로 우리가 구하거나 생각하는 모든 것에 더 넘치도록 능히 하실 이에게 교회 안에서와 그리스도 예수 안에서 영광이 대대로 영원무궁하기를 원하노라. 아멘 에베소서 3:20-21
