Zuwarah in Libya

The Zuwarah are one of many groups of Berbers. They live in the far northwest part of Libya on the Mediterranean Sea, and are mainly farmers. They grow barley, corn, wheat and rye. They raise chickens, goats and sheep. Today, most Berbers refer to themselves as the Imazighen, which means "men of noble origin." The Zuwarah, like other Berbers, are generally bilingual, speaking both Zuara (a dialect of Nafusi) and Arabic. The Zuwarah are almost entirely Muslim.

Ministry Obstacles

There is a great lack of Christian resources available in the Nafusi language. Pray for the funds and workers needed to create resources and deliver them to the people.

Outreach Ideas

Much prayer is needed to give the Zuwarah people a hunger to know and serve Jesus Christ. Pray the Lord would be preparing hearts to understand and believe even now.

Scripture Focus

"If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting,"  2 John 1:10

Scripture Prayer

Pray that todays’ people group rejects false teachers and false doctrine.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the few Christian believers among the Zuwarah Berbers, that the Lord would be quick to convict of sin, and would teach them to live the Spirit-filled life. Pray for the Lord to remember the ancient prayers of long-dead Berber Christians, as they prayed for their descendants to know and follow Christ.
