The Abazinians in Egypt have managed to become part of Egypt's elite. For many generations they have inter-married with the movers and shakers of Egypt, the largest and in some ways the most influential country in the Arabic-speaking world.
People groups that have much power, prestige and wealth are usually not receptive to spiritual change.
It will take someone from a prestigious community to reach the Abazinians. Pray for Christian businessmen to be thrust out to reach them for the Savior.
Only about one in 1,000 Abazinians in Egypt have accepted the Savior. Pray that the few among them will shine as lights in a land that is struggling with spiritual darkness.
Pray for discovery Bible studies to spread rapidly as they bless Abaza families and neighborhoods. Ask the Lord to save key leaders among the Abazinians who will boldly declare the Gospel.
