Abaza, Arabized in Egypt

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
The Abazinians in Egypt have managed to become part of Egypt's elite. For many generations they have inter-married with the movers and shakers of Egypt, the largest and in some ways the most influential country in the Arabic-speaking world.

Ministry Obstacles
People groups that have much power, prestige and wealth are usually not receptive to spiritual change.

Outreach Ideas
It will take someone from a prestigious community to reach the Abazinians. Pray for Christian businessmen to be thrust out to reach them for the Savior.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Only about one in 1,000 Abazinians in Egypt have accepted the Savior. Pray that the few among them will shine as lights in a land that is struggling with spiritual darkness.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for the Lord to reveal Himself through dreams and visions to Abazinian people.
* Ask the Lord to save key leaders among the Abazinians who will boldly declare the Gospel.
* Pray for strong local churches and discipleship movements will be raised up among the Abazinians.

Scripture Focus
"Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you." Luke 11:36
