Ministry Obstacles
Access to the marshes of Iraq is difficult, both because of the water and because of the turmoil in Iraq.

Outreach Ideas
Gospel radio broadcasts would be strategic in this region. Please pray for the availability of these broadcasts, and that the people will learn of them and listen with understanding.

Pray for the followers of Christ
It's not certain there are followers of Jesus Christ among the Marsh Arabs. If there are, they are few in number. Please pray for any believers who may be there, and those who will soon become believers.

Pray for the entire people group
The marsh environment has meant that certain diseases, such as malaria, have been common. Farm fields and homes are vulnerable to periodic droughts and flooding. Please pray for protection from these dangers.
