The Kharga are Bedouins who live in Egyptian desert areas west of the city of Alexandria. Bedouins live nomadic lifestyles, leading their camels, goats and sheep to sources of water and food. Governments discourage this type of life, as it makes collecting taxes difficult and nearly impossible for Bedouin children to regularly attend school. Some Kharga young people are moving to cities looking for a better life.
Being a Muslim is part of the personal identity of the Bedouin. Nomadic peoples are some of the most challenging to reach with the gospel. Missionaries would have to follow the Kharga in their seasonal travels throughout the desert.
The JESUS Film is available in Libyan Arabic, the language of the Kharga. Teams of medical workers and veterinarians can demonstrate the love of Christ to the Kharga in practical ways.
"I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth." Psalm 34:1
May many from this people group praise Him at all times!
Ask the Lord to send workers to the Kharga of Egypt. Ask the Lord to open the hearts of the Kharga leaders and elders to receive the good news about Jesus. Pray that Kharga leaders would investigate the claims of Christ. Ask the Lord to raise up a disciple making movement among the Kharga of Egypt in this decade. Pray that Kharga parents would be able to provide for their children.
