Naath of South Sudan

Pray for the Naath of South Sudan

The Naath, also called the Nuer, are cattle herders living in both Ethiopia and South Sudan.
In many African societies, cattle are considered to be “currency ” and the primary source of wealth. The more cattle one has, the more wealthy one is. Often cows are used in business transactions and as payment for wedding dowries. They are also traded to settle disputes between families.
The Naath believe in a supernatural being. They also believe in lesser gods, which they call “kuuth,” but they know there is only one God (Kuoth). The Naath of South Sudan are unevangelized and unengaged, while their counterparts in Ethiopia have had more evangelical influence.

Prayer Requests

“Open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.” (Acts 26:18)
