Beja, Hadendoa of Sudan

Introduction / History
"I will never forget our time with the legendary Hadendoa Bejas." The photographer and writer from England continued, "After miles of traveling on a rough road through the scorching hot Sahara Desert near the Red Sea, our guide led our small group on camels. … Suddenly, dwarfed by the mountains, came several dark skinned men with hair so bushy it almost hid their faces. They were Hadendoas collecting firewood, which they would eventually take to sell in a nearby town.… Then several Hadendoa Bejas on camels came towards us with swords in the air and rage in their eyes. We assured them in Arabic that we had come a long way to meet them and had brought coffee as a gift. This immediately relieved the tension. We both dismounted and the leader gave us a warm welcome. Soon we were drinking coffee and were invited to come to their camp."
The 63,000 Hadendoa Bejas are traditionally a pastoral people. Droughts and lack of grazing reserves have caused some to find new livelihoods in farming, labor jobs at seaport cities, or selling some of their products. Although their language is Bedawiyet, many can also speak Arabic. Islamic in identity, most Hadendoa have never heard of the Biblical God.

Prayer Points
Pray that God will send His people to them to tell of His greatness, mercy, and love.
