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

Pray for workers needed to sow God's Word into Regeibat families, healing and strengthening households with God's blessings.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray the few believers among the Regeibat will grow in sharing and discussing God's Word with their families and communities. 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.
