Introduction

The Nubians consist of seven non-Arab Muslim tribes which originated in the Nubia region, an area that straddles southern Egypt and northern Sudan. One of these seven subgroups are the Fedicca-Mohas Nubians. For centuries, the Nubian territory was a crossroads between Egypt and the African tribal kingdoms. Today the Fedicca-Mohas Nubian economy is based on agriculture. They grow their own food, and their staple is dura, a thin, coarse wheat bread.


Ministry Obstacles

Fear that Christianity undermines their identity, and traditions is one way Satan uses to hinder Nubian communities from accepting Christ’s blessings.


Outreach Ideas

Pray for believers to build bridges of friendship and trust with Nubian family leaders.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray that Nubian people who know Christ will become wise in sowing the Word of God among their families and friends.


Pray for the Entire People Group

* Pray that loving African believers will gain a vision to see the Nubians reached for Christ.
* Ask the Lord to save key leaders among the Nubians who will boldly declare the gospel.
* Pray for cooperation among mission agencies that are ministering to these tribes.
