Dui-Menia Bedouin in Algeria

The term 'Bedu' in the Arabic language refers to one who lives out in the open, in the desert. In ancient times, most people settled near rivers but the Bedouin people preferred to live in the open desert. The Bedouins are seen as Arab culture's purest representatives and the Bedouins continue to be hailed by other Arabs as "ideal" Arabs, especially because of their rich oral poetic tradition, their herding lifestyle, and their traditional code of honor. Bedouins are distinct from other Arabs because of their extensive kinship networks, which provide them with community support and the basic necessities for survival. Only a few Bedouins live as their forefathers did in camel and goat hair tents, raising livestock, hunting and raiding. The first converts to Islam came from the Bedouin tribes and therefore (Sunni) Islam is embedded and deeply rooted in Bedouin culture.

Ministry Obstacles

Although there are resources available in their languages, the Bedouin have proved to be resistant to Christianity.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for gospel radio to be widely available throughout the lands of the Bedouin. Pray for the funding needed for this and for excellent programming that will be acceptable to the Bedouins.

Scripture Focus

"Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen"  Jude 1:24-25

Scripture Prayer

Make this your prayer for today’s people group.

Prayer Focus

Few Dui-Menia Bedouin individuals know and follow Jesus at this time. Pray the Lord would be preparing teachers and pastors for those who will soon come to saving faith in Christ. Pray for pure drinking water for the Bedouin, for improved medical care and for employment opportunities.
