Turkana in Ethiopia

The Turkana are one of the most courageous and fierce groups of warriors in Africa. They are traditionally nomadic shepherds, and are one of the most mobile populations in the world. They do not have chiefs or elders. Political influence belongs to those who have age, wealth, wisdom, and oratorical skill. Because of the unusually high bride-price, it is almost impossible for a man to marry until his father has died and he has inherited livestock. Though fearless in all respects, they hold to folk beliefs. They believe in dreams and place great faith in diviners who have the power to heal the sick, make rain, and tell fortunes.

Ministry Obstacles

The Turkana are quite mobile, making them difficult to contact and more difficult to befriend.

Outreach Ideas

A number of resources are available in the Turkana language, including the New Testament. Pray for workers to take these resources to the people.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray the few followers of Jesus among this tribe will live holy lives, singing and making melody in their hearts to the Lord. Pray the Lord will use them as his instruments.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for these nomadic people to find food for their livestock, and find ways to educate their children in spite of being mobile.

Scripture Focus

"For from the rising of the sun, even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations ... says the Lord of hosts." Malachi 1:11

Aimaq, Firozkohi in Afganistán

"Aimaq" significa "gente tribal". Los aimaq firozkohi son una de las tribus semi-nómadas. Las tribus fueron identificadas por primera vez en los siglos XVI y XVII cuando los grupos estaban unidos por los jefes procedentes de fuera de la zona. El tribalismo es fuerte entre todos los grupos aimaq. Por ejemplo, las disputas tienden a ser resueltas por las autoridades tribales en lugar de por las autoridades gubernamentales. El concepto tradicional de honor y vergüenza, que es muy importante en la ley tribal, todavía es más fuerte que la ley islámica o estatal. Los aimaq, en contraste marcado con otras sociedades en zonas rurales de Afganistán, otorgan a las mujeres un estatus alto.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

Afganistán no es abierto a ningún tipo de testimonio cristiano.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Los cristianos necesitan realmente preocuparse por las necesidades físicas y materiales de los aimaq, buscando oportunidades para ayudarles con las necesidades de educación, atención de la salud, etc.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Casi no hay seguidores de Cristo entre las tribus aimaq de Afganistán. No obstante, rogad por los que el Señor llamará pronto a este grupo. Ore por tengan protección física y también no ser demasiado temerosos. Ore para que aprendan a vivir plenamente en el poder del Espíritu del Señor, demostrando una vida santa y llena de gozo.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore por las tribus aimaq que cada vez más deseen conocer al Príncipe de Paz, Jesucristo. Ore por la paz en Afganistán.

Texto Bíblico

"También te di por luz de las naciones, para que seas mi salvación hasta lo postrero de la tierra." Isaías 49:6

Turkana in 에티오피아

Turkana 종족은 아프리카에서 가장 용맹하고 사나운 투사들에 속합니다. 전통적으로 유목 생활을 하는 목자(shepherds)들이며 세계에서 가장 이주를 많이 하는 사람들에 속합니다. 이들은 추장이나 연장자 그룹이 없습니다. 이들 사이에서 정치적 영향력이 있으려면, 나이가 있거나 부유하거나 지혜가 있거나 연설을 잘 해야 합니다. 신부를 사오는 값이 비정상적으로 높기 때문에, 결혼하려는 남자의 아버지가 돌아가시고 가축을 물려주기 전에 결혼하는 것은 거의 불가능합니다. 어떤 상황에서도 두려움이 없는 이들이지만, 반면 매우 미신적인 사람들입니다. 이들은 꿈을 믿으며, 병자를 고쳐주고 비를 내리게도 하며 점을 치는 예언가들을 신봉합니다.

선교 장애 요인

Turkana 사람들은 이주가 잦기 때문에 접촉하기가 어렵고 친구맺기도 힘듭니다.

전도 방법 제안

Turkana 언어로 된 복음 자료는 많으며, 신약성경도 준비되어 있습니다. 이들에게 이런 자료를 전달해줄 사역자들을 위해 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

이 종족 안에서 예수님을 따르는 소수의 사람들이 거룩한 삶을 살도록, 주님께 마음으로 노래하며 곡조를 지어부를 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오. 주님께서 그들을 자신의 도구로 사용하시도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

이 유목민들이 가축들을 먹일 음식을 찾을 수 있도록, 이주가 잦긴 하지만 아이들을 교육시킬 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

만군의 여호와가 이르노라 해 뜨는 곳에서부터 해 지는 곳까지의 이방 민족 중에서 내 이름이 크게 될 것이라 각처에서 내 이름을 위하여 분향하며 깨끗한 제물을 드리리니 이는 내 이름이 이방 민족 중에서 크게 될 것임이니라 말라기 1:11
