Introduction

Halebi is an Egyptian name for gypsy. The Halebi reside in the Nile delta in four tribes. They claim to come from Yemen or Syria, but this is uncertain. Traditionally, the men trade in horses and the women practice folk medicine, fortune-telling and divination. Some travel into the Sudan because of economic hardship.


Ministry Obstacles

It may be difficult for the Halebi to trust outsiders.


Outreach Ideas

Christians need to build friendships with these gypsies, caring genuinely for their material and physical needs.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There may be a few followers of Christ among the Halebi. Pray for these, and pray for the new believers that will soon be evident. Pray they in all things will grow up into him who is the Head, Christ.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for these gypsies to increasingly hunger to know the Son of God. Pray also for their material and physical well-being.
