Fur in Egypt

Fur in Egypt

Fur in Egypt

Darfur, the name of the area where they live today, means the homeland of the Fur. This area was known in the 16th century as Southern Nubia. They are an active farming people and may also raise cattle. The Fur are nominally Sunni Muslims following the Maliki school of Islamic law. They are kin to the Kanuri people of Nigeria, with whom they maintained contact over the centuries.

Ministry Obstacles

The Darfur area is in much turmoil, a dangerous place.

Outreach Ideas

Workers need to minister to the Fur by helping them physically and materially. The needs are great.

Scripture Focus

"You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability."  2 Peter 3:17

Scripture Prayer

Pray that the Lord protects the believers in today’s people group from false teachers and false teaching.

Prayer Focus

Pray for a movement to Jesus to multiply among Fur families and neighborhoods. There are few followers of Christ among the Fur, but pray the Lord would soon build his church among this ancient community. Pray they would keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Ask the Lord to help the Fur care properly for their families, and to live lives of peace in a dangerous land. Pray the Lord would give them increasing hunger to learn more about Jesus (whom Muslims call Isa al-Masih), the Prince of Peace.
