Northern African and Middle Eastern Peoples

Praise the Lord for those who have come to faith among the Shwai of Sudan! Living on one of the isolated hills in the Nuba Mountains, situated near the southern border of Sudan, the Shwai people are hearing the good news! Yet in this population of 8,600, there are still many who continue to follow the beliefs of their fathers, practicing the tenants of that religion mixed with folk superstitions. They have no assurance of an eternity with God. Pray for these Muslims to seek God, be drawn to the truth through dreams and visions, and hear the truth of the gospel. Pray for the Shwai believers to be encouraged, be able to meet regularly with a community of believers, and grow in the Word. “Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!” (Psalm 67:5 ESV).
