Shaikh Qureshi in Pakistan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
According to tradition, the first people who embraced Islam because of the teachings of Mohammed were given the honorary title "shaikh." This title is given to devout Muslims not only in the Arab world, but also in South Asia. Though the Shaikhs have high status in Muslim communities, most are livestock herders.

Ministry Obstacles
Honor and prestige for being loyal to a religious system makes one very reluctant to accept guidance from a Savior who seems to appeal to those outside one's community.

Outreach Ideas
It will take someone with excellent people skills, story-telling skills, and a solid theological background to reach out to the Qureshi Shaikhs.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are no known followers of Christ in this Muslim community but pray that there soon will be. Someone from the Qureshi Shaikh community can influence South Asian Muslims to embrace the only Savior.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for His kingdom to come and His will to be done among the Qureshi Shaikhs.
* Pray for a spiritual hunger that will drive the Qureshi Shaikhs to the arms of Jesus.
* Pray for workers who are filled with the fruit and the power of the Holy Spirit to go to the Qureshi Shaikhs.
