Abu Sharib in Chad


Abu Sharib in Chad

The Abu Sharib live in eastern Chad. Living in an area with plentiful water supply, they can cultivate gardens around the rivers and the people don't have to move their herds around. Agriculture lies at the heart of life in their villages.

Ministry Obstacles

At the beginning of the rainy season, they make sacrifices before planting millet, the main crop. With these sacrifices the Abu Sharib ask for the blessing of enough rain and a good harvest. The sacrifices pre-date Islam but today the Abu Sharib profess to be Muslims.

Outreach Ideas

The Abu Sharib need to understand that Isa (Jesus) is much more than a human prophet. Mission agencies could show Jesus' love and power by sending teams of medical workers to provide for medical needs. The Abu Sharib also need schools for their children, and Christian teachers could help meet that need.

Scripture Focus

"As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us."  Psalm 103:12

Scripture Prayer

Pray for this people group to find forgiveness and relationship with the Lord Almighty.

Prayer Focus

Few Abu Sharib are followers of Christ. Pray the tiny church will flourish. Ask the Lord to send workers who can tell them the good news of Jesus Christ. Pray that Bible and Christian resources would be translated into their language. Pray that Abu Sharib parents would be able to provide for their children. Pray for hearts that are open to the gospel.
