Kabardian in Jordan


Kabardian in Jordan

Kabardian people hail from Russia's northwestern Caucasus, but some now live in Jordan. They embody remarkable aspects of human beauty and strength. Kabardian youth are trained to serve and defer to elders, and Kabardian national dances reveal this code of honor. The straight backs, regal movements, and modest costuming all display a dignity and pride in their heritage.

Ministry Obstacles

Like all peoples, the Kabardians have darkened hearts. Equal to hospitality as a cultural value is the code of blood revenge. While not always literally practiced, it underscores a generationally ingrained defensiveness and unwillingness to reconcile offenses. Once characterized by folk Islam, Kabardians are now plagued more and more by an encroaching attraction to radicalism among many youths. Attacks and counterattacks between rebels and military/police both claim innocent lives and exacerbate instability, deepening bitterness and mistrust in the region.

Outreach Ideas

The New Testament, JESUS Film, and audio resources have been translated into the Kabardian language, and they can access them through the internet.

Scripture Focus

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations."  Jeremiah 1:5

Scripture Prayer

Pray for the Lord to thrust out many prophets from every nation to every nation in the 2020s.

Prayer Focus

Pray that spiritual barriers that have kept the gospel from advancing among the Kabardians would be broken down. Pray for divinely prepared people who will lovingly share the gospel throughout Kabardian relational networks. Pray that a reproducing, culturally relevant movement to Christ will begin among Kabardian leaders and families.
