Air Tuareg in Niger

Air Tuareg in Niger

There are many Tuareg subgroups, including the Air Tuareg, named after their homeland in the Air Mountains. This area is part of the Sahel Desert, but the location is relatively wet, with enough water to sustain small herds. Though the Tuareg are known for being fierce desert warriors, the Air Tuareg hold a public festival which they open to outsiders. The festival features cultural events, camel rides and a market for locally made goods.

Ministry Obstacles

The Air Tuareg are a proud people. It will be hard for them to humbly accept that they are sinners in desperate need of a savior.

Outreach Ideas

Christ followers can take gospel recordings and Bible portions to the Air Tuareg people during their festivals. It would be helpful if these people spoke French since that is a key trade language in Niger.

Scripture Focus

"Jesus answered him, Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."  John 3:3

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many in this people group are born again and enter into the Kingdom of God.

Prayer Focus

Pray the festivals would flourish and become a means for outsiders to take Christian materials to the Air Tuareg people in Niger. Pray for the Lord to speak to Air Tuareg decision makers through dreams and visions. Pray for spiritual humility and a desire to come close to the Holy One.
