What would you teach your children to speak if your own people group was small, and there were three other small languages in the local vicinity? You would use the trade language, right? This is what most Chenoua speaking parents do. They live in rural parts of Algeria, and they believe the Algerian government does not help them enough with their infrastructure needs.
Their desert home makes access difficult. Muslim extremism and terrorist groups are present in some areas. Foreigners often experience difficulty obtaining visas since the government wants to restrict outside influences.
There is a radio outreach in their language and a small number of believers who can reach the Muslim majority. Women with the right skills can reach Chenoua women and help them with their medical and educational needs. Currently there is a Berber rug decor trend. Disciple makers could connect with local rug producers and purchase their goods for the world market.
"I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name." Revelation 3:8
Pray for a wide-open door for the gospel to penetrate the culture of this people group.
Pray for laborers who are committed people, willing to lay down their lives for the sake of the gospel. Pray for every hindrance of the gospel's touching the Chenoua people's lives to be removed. Pray for a spiritual hunger among the Chenoua people that will lead them to the foot of the cross.
