Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Godoberi are native to Dagestan. They settled this area eight or nine centuries before Christ. From ancient animistic religious traditions, between the 10th-14th Centuries the Godoberi converted to Islam. Their Islamic practices continue strongly influenced by animistic elements. They speak their own language. Their primary occupation is farming, horticulture and cattle production. They also tend vinyards and beehives. They have a patriarichal society and large families. The Godaberi have very rich folklore and many legends about their national heroes and about how their villages were created.

What are their beliefs?
Their religion is Muslim-Sunnite and animism. They also worship nature.

Prayer Points
* Beseech the Lord of the Harvest to send missionaries to Daghestan as well as translators, that the people may not only be able to hear the Good News, but read it also, in their own language.
* Pray that God would open their eyes so that they would worship the Creator rather than the creation!
* Pray for creative and relevant approaches to the Godaberi with the Gospel.
* Pray for translation of the Bible to begin in this people group's primary language.
* Pray for the availability of the Jesus Film in the primary language of this people.
* Pray for Gospel messages to become available in audio format for this people group.
