Tuareg, Asben in Niger

The Tuareg are a Berber people, with the name "Tuareg" coming from the Berber name for a Libyan province. They have been a largely nomadic people, occuping large areas of desert and the Sahel. Each Tuareg clan is made up of several family groups, led by their collective chief. In Tuareg society women do not traditionally wear the veil, whereas men do. The veil is often blue in color. Tuareg women have great freedom and participate in family and tribal decisions. They have been Muslim for generations, but have preserved many pre-Islamic traditions.

Ministry Obstacles

Access to the Tuareg is somewhat limited, both by the terrain and by the strongly held Muslim beliefs of the people.

Outreach Ideas

The New Testament and Gospel recordings are available in the language of this tribe. Pray for Christian radio to also be made available to the remote areas occupied by the Tuareg.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be a few followers of Jesus among the Asben Tuareg. Pray for these people, and for others who will soon join them. They will need to be instructed in the Christian faith and protected from discouragement and sinful behavior.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray the Tuareg tribes will have adequate rainfall for their herds and crops. Pray for peaceful relations with neighboring tribes, and with the governments of Niger and Mali.

Scripture Focus

"Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name." 1 Chronicles 16:28-29

Tuareg, Asben in Níger

Los tuareg son un pueblo berebere. El nombre "tuareg" viene de la designación berebere para una provincia en Libia. Han sido un grupo mayormente nómada, ocupando grandes áreas desérticas y el Sahel. Cada clan tuareg está compuesto de varios grupos de familias, guiados por un jefe común. En la sociedad tuareg, la mujer tradicionalmente no usa el velo, mientras que el hombre sí. El velo muchas veces es de color azul. Las mujeres tuareg tienen mucha libertad y participan en decisiones familiares y de la tribu. Los tuareg han sido musulmanes por varias generaciones, pero han conservado muchas tradiciones pre-islámicas.

Obstáculos para el Ministerio

El acceso a los tuareg es un poco limitado por dos razones: por el terreno y por las creencias musulmanas fuertemente arraigadas.

Ideas para el Ministerio

Las grabaciones del Nuevo Testamento y del Evangelio en el idioma de esta tribu están disponibles. Ore para que las radiodifusoras cristianas sean accesibles en los lugares remotos ocupados por los tuareg.

Ore por los Seguidores de Cristo

Puede haber algunos cuantos seguidores de Jesús entre los tuareg asben. Ore por estos cuantos, y por los otros que pronto se unirán a ellos. Estos tendrán que ser instruidos en la fe y protegidos del desánimo y del comportamiento pecaminoso.

Ore por toda la Etnia

Ore para que los tuareg tengan lluvia adecuada para su ganado y cultivos. Ore para que tengan relaciones pacíficas con las tribus aldeanas y con los gobiernos de Níger y Mali.

Texto Bíblico

"Tributad a Jehová, oh familias de los pueblos, Dad a Jehová gloria y poder. Dad a Jehová la honra debida a su nombre." 1 Crónicas 16:28-29

Tuareg, Asben in 니제르

Tuareg민족은 베르베르인들입니다. 리비아 지역의 베르베르인을 부르는 이름이 "Tuareg"입니다. 이들은 사하라와 사헬(Sahel) 넓은 지역에 거주하는 거대한 유목민족입니다. 각각의 Tuareg 씨족은 몇몇의 가족 그룹들로 이루어져 있으며 공동촌장을 따릅니다. Tuareg민족 사회 여성은 베일을 착용하지 않는 것이 전통이지만, 남성들은 착용합니다. 이 베일은 보통 파란색입니다. Tuareg민족 여성들은 많은 자유가 있으며 가족과 부족의 결정에 참여합니다. 이들은 여러세대 동안 무슬림들이었지만 이슬람을 믿기 이전의 전통도 유지하고 있습니다.

선교 장애 요인

Tuareg 민족에 접근하는 것이 다소 제한적인 것은, 지형적인 이유와 이 사람들이 무슬림 신앙을 강하게 붙들기 때문입니다.

전도 방법 제안

이 민족의 언어로 번역된 신약성경과 오디오 녹음된 복음이 사용가능합니다. 외딴 곳에 멀리 거주하고 있는 Tuareg 민족 사람들이 청취할 수 있는 기독교 라디오가 생기길 기도해 주십시오.

현지 그리스도인들을 위한 기도

Asben Tuareg 민족내에 예수님을 따르는 사람들은 매우 적습니다. 이 사람들과, 곧 이들처럼 크리스천이 될 다른 이들을 위해 기도해 주십시오. 이들은 기독교 신앙에 대해 교육받아야 할 필요가 있으며, 낙심과 죄악된 행동으로부터 보호받아야 됩니다.

이 민족 전체를 위한 기도

Tuareg 부족들이 그들의 농작물과 가축들을 키우기 적절한 강수량이 있기를 기도해 주십시오. 이웃하고 있는 부족과의 관계, 그리고 니제르와 말리 정부와의 평화로운 관계를 유지할 수 있도록 기도해 주십시오.

성경 말씀

"만방의 족속들아 영광과 권능을 여호와께 돌릴찌어다 여호와께 돌릴찌어다 여호와의 이름에 합당한 영광을 그에게 돌릴찌어다 예물을 가지고 그 앞에 들어갈찌어다 아름답고 거룩한 것으로 여호와께 경배할찌어다" 역대상 16:28-29
