Introduction

The Imragen form a Moorish fishing and pastoral culture along the Atlantic shores, made up of three nomadic Bedouin tribes. They have strong cultural traditions. Their peculiar method of catching mullet with the help of dolphins is well known.


Ministry Obstacles

These people live in an area that is difficult for Christian workers to access.


Outreach Ideas

Christian radio and television can overcome the obstacle of remoteness.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the Christian believers who will someday emerge from the Imragen, that they will be taught properly in the faith and become mature, leading holy and productive lives.


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for safety for those who fish, and for good schools for the children.
