Northern African and Middle Eastern Unengaged Peoples

In the middle of Tunisia, the Tmagourt, a small Berber people group, farm their land and shepherd their flocks. This tribe has maintained its tribal language, Nafusi, but some, primarily men, also speak Tunisian Arabic for trade. Unfortunately, there are no Bible resources in Nafusi. Also, because this is a small tribe, it is difficult for a gospel witness to penetrate the tight community. The Tmagourt people follow the religion they know: Islam mixed with folk practices and beliefs. Pray that a gospel witness will be able to enter this tribe. Pray for believers to have boldness, access, and the wisdom needed to reach out to the Tmagourt tribe for Christ. Ask the Lord to give the Tmagourt access to the Word in their heart language by sending able-minded people to translate. May many Tmagourt come to the true Shepherd who says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:27-28 ESV).
