The Afar Nomads in the Horn of Africa

Sunday, 20 September
"Loving Muslims Through Prayer"

For centuries the Afar have had little chance to hear the Gospel. Recital of Qur’anic verses and fear of the spirits of the desert goes back generations for the Afar. But decades ago God already sent people from the Horn of Africa. Together with the few Afar believers, a radio work of high quality has been developed. The Gospel is now heard! During the last three years many in the Ethiopian church have begun praying fervently for the Afar. Some Afar have come to faith and are being trained and baptized. They often experience harsh persecution, but they are ready to suffer. In 2008 believing Afar sisters compiled an expanded radio series for women. Thanks to the devotion and love from these sisters nomadic women have the possibility of new life in Christ.

The Afar: 1.5 million trekking Africa's Danakil Desert from south Eritrea, north Djibouti and parts of east Ethiopia. Most are illiterate.

Prayer Starters:
  • Pray for the radio production team and their many listeners of this area.
  • Pray that men and women will hear the new radio programme and open their hearts to the message of freedom.
  • Pray that whole families will come to faith in the Messiah and establish new communities of believers.
