Swahili-Speaking Arabs of East Africa

(swah-HEE-lee) – Many Swahili-speaking Arabs of East Africa have experienced trauma in their lives. With little help in processing these pains, they often carry them around like heavy luggage their whole lives. For Anna, the abuse she endured as a child left her weary in her relationship with her mother. Even after her mother’s passing, her thoughts weigh heavy on her, leaving her wondering why she wasn’t protected and feeling guilty that the relationship was never fully restored. She has tried to find healing through practicing yoga while remaining devout in her faith. Last year, she excitedly accepted a copy of the Word but hasn’t spoken about it since. Please pray that Anna and those like her will seek answers from the Great Healer and that she will find rest for her weary and burdened soul in Jesus.
