Barma, Bagirmi in Chad

The Barma (or Bagirmi) occupy the territory between N'Djamena (Chad's capital) and Bousso, a small city farther south on the Chari River. In the 1700's, the Barmas' ancestors ruled the Bagirmi Empire, a large area across Chad and into Sudan. At the end of the 1700's, the empire was attacked by Islamic Wadai armies and was never able to regain its political independence. The Barma have been followers of the Islamic faith since the sixteenth century. They are devout Muslims.

Ministry Obstacles

Chad is not hospitable to Christian workers, and the region is strongly Islamic.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for Christian radio to blanket the country of Chad, and that broadcasts in the Bagirmi language will be included.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may very well be no followers of Jesus among this tribe at present. But pray for those the Lord is preparing to call to Himself. Pray that as they become Christ­- followers they will live holy lives and will honor the Lord with their lives. Pray for healthy marriages among these new Christians.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for adequate rainfall for crops and for livestock. Pray also that parents will understand the need of schooling for the children.

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

Java Pesisir Lor in Indonesia

Se sabe que los jawa pesisir lor expresan sus convicciones con la acción y la emoción, no sólo con palabras. Muchos opinan que la cultura tradicional jawa es retrasada y están orgullosos de lo que ellos consideran una visión más moderna del mundo y un mayor compromiso para la fe islámica. La mayoría de los jawa pesisir lor consideran sagradas las tumbas de dos hombres santos, Sunan Kalijaga y Sunan Ja'far Shodiq. La gente viene a estas dos tumbas para la adoración y en búsqueda de la bendición.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

El Evangelio de la gracia, que sólo se encuentra en Jesucristo, es difícil para estas personas de comprender y aceptar por su trasfondo.

Ideas para el Ministerio

La Biblia y muchas buenas herramientas, como la película de Jesús están disponibles en su idioma. Ore por los obreros.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Ore por los creyentes, que tengan hambre y sed de justicia, y que estén bien educados en la fe. Ore para que sean buenos testimonios a los que les rodean.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore por sistemas de riego más eficaces y por mejores oportunidades de empleo.

Texto Bíblico

"a fin de que todos los pueblos de la tierra sepan que Jehová es Dios, y que no hay otro." 1 Reyes 8:60

Barma, Bagirmi in 차드

Barma(또는Bagirmi)민족은 N'Djamena (Chad의 수도)와 멀리 남쪽 부근의 Chari강 유역의 작은 도시인 Bousso 사이의 지역에 거주합니다. 1700년대 Barmas의 조상들은 차드를 가로칠러 수단까지 이르는 큰 지역을 아우르는 Bagirmi제국을 통치했습니다. 1700년대 말, 제국은 이슬람 Wadai군대에 의해 공격을 당했으며 그 이후 한 번도 그들의 정치적 독립을 되찾지 못했습니다. Barma민족은 16세기 이후로 이슬람신앙을 따르고 있습니다. 그들은 독실한 무슬림입니다.

선교 장애 요인

차드는 기독교 사역자들에 대해 호의적이지 않으며 이 지역은 강한 이슬람문화권입니다.

전도 방법 제안

기독교 라디오가 차드 전국에서 청취가능해지도록, Bagirmi언어로 된 방송도 포함될 수 있도록 기도해주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

현재 이 종족 가운데에는 예수님을 따르는 사람들은 없는 것으로 보입니다. 하지만 주님께서 그에게 부르실 사람들을 위해 기도해 주십시오. 이들이 점차 그리스도와 같이 되어가면서 신자들이 거룩한 삶을 살고 이들의 삶으로 하나님께 영광을 돌리게 되길 기도해 주십시오. 이러한 새로운 기독교인들 사이의 건전한 결혼을 위해 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

작물과 가축들을 위한 적절한 강수량을 위해 기도해 주십시오. 또한 이들의 자녀를 위한 교육의 필요성을 부모들이 깨달을 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

"이에 세상 만민에게 여호와께서만 하나님이시고 그 외에는 없는 줄을 알게 하시기를 원하노라" 열왕기상 8:60
