Tihami Arab in Saudi Arabia

The Tihami people are easily recognized by their colorful clothing, flowers in their hair and their large families since they love children. Although most live in Yemen, some live in Saudi Arabia as nomads and some as farmers. Like most peoples in this region, they are noted for their amazing hospitality. They are Muslim, a truly unreached people.

Ministry Obstacles

Like the Sudanese Arabs, the main obstacle to reaching them is that they are in Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Oman, all which are closed to mission efforts. Their other obstacle is nomadism, which makes it very difficult for outsiders to contact them. However, we must remember that someone took that effort to bring Islam to their communities.

Outreach Ideas

They can be reached by various forms of media: radio, television, the Internet, Facebook and YouTube.

Scripture Focus

"And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus."  Acts 4:29-30

Scripture Prayer

Pray for boldness and love among the workers who go to today’s people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray that God would use media to reach them and that they would be prepared for a Christ encounter through dreams and visions. Pray for workers to prepare gospel messages for them in their own tongue. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement among the Tihami people that cannot be stopped by man's best efforts. Pray for religious freedom in Saudi Arabia.
