Masalit in Chad

The Masalit are often very poor, living in mud huts. Before recent fighting in Dar Fur, the Masalit were self-sufficient in subsistence farming, including raising cattle. In the fighting, their cattle have been stolen and their homes, tools, and crops have been destroyed. Recent decades of an active Arabization campaign conducted in Sudan since the 1970s has hardened ethnic identities in the area, and led to a reactionary re-identification by all the black Muslim tribes as "African." The Masalit are nominally Muslim, but they continue to direct prayers to their traditional gods of land and sky.

Ministry Obstacles

Spiritual opposition is to be expected when the name and works of Jesus are held high. Workers should be prepared for it.

Outreach Ideas

Gospel recordings are available in the language of the Masalit. Pray for workers to take the recordings to the people.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are reports of a few followers of Christ among the Masalit in Chad. They need our prayers. Pray the Lord will send someone to teach them.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray these poor people will be able to grow sufficient food for their needs, and be protected from warring tribes in the area.

Scripture Focus

"Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me." Matthew 25:40

Tebbu, Diebu in China

Los tebbu (o diebu) viven en una de las regiones más drásticamente remotas de China. Están en gran medida aislados del resto del mundo por su entorno. La patria tebbu es peligrosa para los visitantes aún hasta la fecha, y la gente es salvaje e impredecible. Aunque casi todos los tebbu profesan el budismo tibetano, los rituales chamánicos y animistas forman las bases de todas sus prácticas religiosas.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

La lejanía de los tebbu ha sido durante mucho tiempo un obstáculo para el Evangelio de Cristo.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Se necesita de mucha oración para preparar los corazones de los tebbu para querer oír de Cristo. Ore por corazones hambrientos y receptivos.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Hay evidencia de un solo seguidor de Cristo hoy entre los tebbu aunque hubo varios hace muchas décadas. Ore por el posible remanente de la iglesia temprana, y ore por los tebbu que pronto se convertirán a Cristo. Ore para que los maestros estén a su alcance a pesar de que vivan en un lugar inhóspito.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que los tebbu no se satisfagan con el conocimiento que tienen de Dios. Ore por corazones que busquen y que anhelen conocer más acerca de Dios. Ore para que este deseo les lleve a encontrar a los cristianos quienes les puedan ayudar.

Texto Bíblico

"y cantaban un nuevo cántico, diciendo: Digno eres de tomar el libro y de abrir sus sellos; porque tú fuiste inmolado, y con tu sangre nos has redimido para Dios, de todo linaje y lengua y pueblo y nación;" Apocalipsis 5:9

Masalit in 차드

Masalit 사람들은 매우 가난하여 진흙 오두막에 살아갑니다. 최근 겪은 다르푸르(Dar Fur)사태 이전의 Masalit 사람들은 자급이 가능한 농민이였고 소들도 키웠습니다. 다르푸르 전투에서 그 소들을 도둑맞았고 그들의 집, 농기구, 곡식들이 모두 파괴/멸실되었습니다. 1970년대 이후 수십년간 수단에서 시행된 아랍화의 영향으로 이 지역의 인종적 정체성이 굳어지게 되었으며, 모든 흑인 무슬림 부족을 "아프리카사람"이라고 재식별하게 되었습니다. Masalit 사람들은 명목상의 무슬림인데, 땅과 하늘의 전통적 신들에게 직접 기도하는 것을 지속하고 있습니다.

선교 장애 요인

예수님의 이름과 사역이 높이 선포될 때에 영적 저항이 예상됩니다. 사역자들은 그런 저항에 대해 준비되어야 할 것입니다.

전도 방법 제안

복음 오디오 녹음이 Masalit 종족의 언어로 사용가능합니다. 사역자들이 이 백성들에게 그 녹음을 전달해도록 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

차드의 Masalit 종족 가운데에는 그리스도를 따르는 소수가 있습니다. 그들은 우리의 기도가 필요합니다. 주님께서 그들을 가르칠 이들을 보내시도록 기도해 주십시오.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

이 가난하고 불쌍한 이들이 필요한 만큼 충분한 곡식을 재배하게 되도록, 해당 지역에서 전쟁중인 부족으로부터 보호받도록 기도해 주십오.

성경 말씀

임금이 대답하여 가라사대 내가 진실로 너희에게 이르노니 너희가 여기 내 형제 중에 지극히 작은 자 하나에게 한 것이 곧 내게 한 것이니라 하시고 마태복음 25:40
