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 partially overcome the obstacle of remoteness.

Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray for the Christian believers who will soon be found among the Imragen, that they will be taught properly in the faith and become spiritually mature, leading holy and productive lives.

Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for the Imragen people to be delivered from their fear of "Christendom" and to embrace God's blessing through his Word for their families and communities. Pray for safety for those who fish, and for good schools for the children.
