Introduction

Saudi-Najdi Arabs in Syria fall into two basic classes, “true” Bedouins (desert dwellers), and “fellahim” who lead a more settled life on the edge of the desert. They move into the desert during the rainy winter seasons, and back to the desert’s edge during hot, dry summers. They are 100 percent Sunni Muslim.


Ministry Obstacles

Evangelical efforts to Saudi-Najdi Arabs in Syria are challenging due to harsh and unsettled nature of their lifestyle. There is a great need for missionaries who are willing and able to endure the difficult conditions of the Syrian desert to reach them for Christ.


Outreach Ideas

Medical and educational assistance by believers is needed for these transient people. Broken and obedient workers need to go to these people and live among them, serving and loving them as Christ’s hands and feet.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

There are no known followers of Christ, so pray that this will be the decade where the Holy Spirit begins to move in their communities.


Pray for the Entire People Group

* Pray for the Lord to bless the families among the Saudi-Najdi Arabs in Syria with His presence and mercy.
* Pray for Bible believing fellowships and disciple-making groups to flourish among them.
