Introduction

The Regeibat comprise several tribes of Bedouin nomads in the interior of the country. They are a subgroup of the Moors, an Arab-Berber people. Slavery has been abolished but may still be practiced in some areas. Slavery has brought attention to the injustices and inequalities tolerated by traditional Moor society.


Ministry Obstacles

The Regeibat live in an area of limited access, both geographically and because of attitudes.


Outreach Ideas

Films such as the Jesus film and the God's Story video can be helpful, especially if supplemented by hearing stories from Scripture.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are few if any believers among the Regeibat, but pray for those that will soon emerge. Pray they will be accurately instructed in the faith, and that they will be strengthened by the Holy Spirit to live holy lives.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray that each individual in the Regeibat people group may hunger to know forgiveness for their sins found only through faith in Jesus Christ, and that this hunger will soon be satisfied.
