The Afar

There are 2.5 million Afar in the Horn of Africa. they are herders of camels and goats. Many have gone seeking work in cities. Many are very poor and most hopeless. They are nominally Muslim but fear spirits.

Pray for new Afar believer L recently visited in his desert village by missionaries. He had filled his house with many people in readiness to hear the gospel. Pray for his continued encouragement and that of all the believers. May they grow in knowledge, faith and zeal. The Afar are an un-reached people spread over the horn of Africa in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti and Somalia.

Remember Alta who is working her way through translation of the NT into Afar. She is starting James.

Pray for courage and integrity for new Afar converts, for open doors to reach women and for the production of an audio version of the Bible in Afar especially a mobile phone version (on micro SD card).
