Luwathiya in Oman

The Luwathiya people have been in Oman for about 400 years. It is unclear whether their language has its roots in India or Persia but we know this: their language is endangered since so few speak it. They are not teaching their language to the next generation, which means the language will probably die out in the coming decades. They worship in their own Shia mosques and meet regularly to study and discuss elements of theology, history and law. An important function in their society is the selection of committees to take care of issues such as marriages, divorces, selection of imams, building mosques, charities and other community affairs.

Ministry Obstacles

The Luwathiya people are friendly but reserved among outsiders. One thing they will not discuss with outsiders is religion. They are a small people group, yet the largest Shia Muslim ethnic group in Sunni Muslim Oman.

Outreach Ideas

Some Luwathiya families have hired foreign Christian workers as domestic helpers who can act as Christ's ambassadors in word and deed.

Scripture Focus

"Being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy;"  Colossians 1:11-12

Scripture Prayer

May new believers among this people group walk in joy and love in the Holy Spirit.

Prayer Focus

Pray for spiritual openness and an awareness of their spiritual needs. Pray for Christ's ambassadors to take His glory to the Luwathiya people of Oman. Pray for a Disciple Making Movement among the Luwathiya people this decade.
