Northern African and Middle Eastern Unengaged Peoples

The Chamba Bedouin live on the northern side of the Sahara in central Algeria. They are a large tribe, numbering 96,000. Like many of the other Bedouin tribes, they primarily herd livestock and farm their fields. Slowly, more and more work at wage-paying jobs, but they do not prefer that kind of work. They are people of the land; they want to work the land. Also, like many other Bedouin, the Chamba are void of a gospel witness. They have not heard about the good news or the one true God. They practice a form of mystic Islam and have never known anything different. Intercede on behalf of the Chamba. Ask the Lord to send His message of salvation to them. Pray that many Chamba will turn to Christ and be some of the first Bedouin to do so. “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:22 ESV).
