Mongallese Arab in South Sudan

Mongallese Arab in South Sudan

Islam spread throughout much of North Africa from the 7th through the 11th centuries. During this time, it became much more common than in Sudan, where it was very hierarchical and mainly followed by the upper classes. One of these "upper class" people groups were the Mongallese in South Sudan. They speak Juba Arabic. A relatively high number believe in Jesus for a predominantly Muslim group in Africa.

Ministry Obstacles

Language is one of the biggest obstacles in sharing the gospel with the Mongallese Arab. Their distinct dialect and strong Islamic beliefs make it difficult for any solid movement to take root.

Outreach Ideas

Translating the Bible into their language is an important way to make the gospel message readily available.

Scripture Focus

"Jesus said to them, Is this not the reason you are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God?"  Mark 12:24

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this people group hungers for and learns the Scriptures. Pray that these people begin to experience the miraculous power of God.

Prayer Focus

Pray for peace and stability in South Sudan, so the people can thrive and the gospel can go forth. Pray for Mongallese Arabs to recognize their provider and savior, so they can put their trust in him. Pray for workers to be sent by the Holy Spirit. Pray for the Lord to send dreams and visions to Mongallese Arab leaders.
