Idaksahak in Algeria

For Idaksahak Berbers, life has essentially remained one of pastoral care for livestock, century after century. They are nomads who hold few possessions and continually stay on the move across the deserts of Algeria and Mali. These "sons of Isaac," which is what Idaksahak means, are committed to their livestock, their families and their Muslim faith. They carry out trade with the Arabs in the region, exchanging their livestock for agricultural goods.

Ministry Obstacles

The very fact that these "sons of Isaac" are nomadic has been a difficult challenge to the church in its calling to reach them with the gospel. Few, if any, missionaries are willing to live like nomads to reach nomads.

Outreach Ideas

Like the Muslims who reached them hundreds of years ago, followers of Christ will have to live like the Idaksahak nomads in order to teach them God's ways.

Scripture Focus

"Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God."  3 John 1:11

Scripture Prayer

Pray that the Lord raises up pastors and teachers in this people group who set good examples and are able to teach the Bible.

Prayer Focus

Pray for an intense spiritual hunger among the Idaksahak people that will lead to many coming to Christ. Pray for rugged but loving believers to go to them until they have the resources they need to teach their own people the gospel. Pray for the Lord to provide the Idaksahak people with adequate rainfall and healthy livestock as an example of His goodness to all.
