Introduction / History

The Mamasani people are a subgroup of the Luri people of Iran. They have been nomads for hundreds of years.

Where Are they Located?

Most of the Mamasani people live in Buyer va-Kohkiluyeh Province in western Iran.

What Are Their Lives Like?

The Mamasani people are mainly nomads who migrate to wherever they can find enough water and food for their livestock. Others work as rug weavers.

What Are Their Beliefs?

The Mamasani people are entirely Muslim, and there is no one to tell them that their eternal destiny is determined by their relationship with Jesus Christ.

What Are Their Needs?

The Mamasani people need veterinarians to help keep their livestock healthy. They also need a way to educate their children since they are highly mobile nomads.

Prayer Points

* Pray that Farsi speaking believers will take the gospel to the Mamasani people.
* Pray for the development of gospel related stories and skits in the language of the Mamasani people.
* Pray for a disciple making movement to flourish among them.
