Introduction / History
Kujarge refers to a language more than a people group. It is labeled an "endangered" language, since this language is being replaced by others.

Where are they located?
There are seven villages in Sudan near Jebel Mirra where they speak Kujarge, and a couple more in Sudan where they also speak this language. They live near where Chad, Sudan, and the Central African Republic come together.

What are their lives like?
Kujarge comes from the Sudanese Arabic word for sorcerer. These people are known by their neighbors to perform witchcraft.

What are their beliefs?
The primary religion practiced by the Kujarge people is Islam, a monotheistic religion built around the teachings of the Koran and of the prophet Mohammad. Along with their belief in Allah, they blend in devotion to a number of spirits that they believe have the power to bless or curse them.

What are their needs?
The Kujarge people need Christian materials; they have none. Since their language is dying out, they need the opportunity to adjust to the language and culture of other people groups.

Prayer Points
