Introduction

The northern tribes of Yemen may be referred to as the Sanaani Arabs. They reside in the northern mountains and north-eastern deserts, as well as around the capital city of Sana'a. The growing of the narcotic qat has become the mainstay of rural Yemen, and some nearly half of the national economy is involved in qat.


Ministry Obstacles

Yemen is not easily accessible to outsiders, and not open to Christian testimony.


Outreach Ideas

Christian television and radio provide effective means of access that transcends country boundaries.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the few believers among the Sanaani Arabs, that they would be united around the truth of Scripture, growing in holiness and love.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the northern tribes of Yemen, that they will increasingly hunger for the righteousness and forgiveness found only in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
