Aimaq, Char in Afghanistan

The Char Aimaq were first known as the chahar (four) Eimaks (Mongolian for tribes), a designation recognizing its make-up of four major tribes: Taimani, Firozkohi, Timuri and Jamshidi. Never politically united, tribal alliances joined for protection against invaders. Aimaq are known as formidable warriors. Once nomadic peoples, they were forced by cycles of severe drought and war into semi-nomadic lives, traveling seasonally to graze decimated herds and/or subsisting as sedentary farmers and carpet weavers in mud-brick villages. Aimaq tribal customs remain stronger than Afghan nationalism, due in part to long-enjoyed independence and geographical distance from the central government in Kabul.

Ministry Obstacles

Afghanistan remains a dangerous place, especially for any kind of Christian witness.

Outreach Ideas

Pray that community leaders among the Char Aimaq may encounter Jesus in dreams and visions if this is the Lord's will, and that God will send workers who will tell them of the One they encountered.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

If there are any Christian believers among the Char Aimaq they are quite few in number. They need prayer support for protection and to help them become firmly established in the mercy and grace of Jesus Christ. Pray the Lord will encourage them and sustain them. Pray for the new believers the Lord will soon call to himself.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for peace in Afghanistan. Pray for stability, and for the government to become strong enough to maintain order.

Scripture Focus

"that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God; there is no one else." 1 Kings 8:60
