Prayer for the Rashaida

Sorry I haven't been writing nnn stuff.
I've been a little occupied with God wrecking me and things of the like.
Don't worry though, I'm digging it.

I do want to drop in and ask for my prayers from my praying people.
Philip and I have been doing The Live Dead Journal, [which has been an amazing experience in itself at only half way through.] and God is opening our eyes to groups of people and their cultures and the lives that don't even get the chance to hear about Christ.

16,000 + groups of people in this world
6,800 of them with no active Christian witness.

We live where Jesus is known of, heard of, and spoken of.
There are places all over this Earth where people have not even
heard. His. name.

Our friends have started a Give 12 Challenge asking for 12 minutes a day of prayer for 12 months for 12 different people groups.  We've been praying for the Rashaida people.

They live in Sudan, and they are known for being fierce warrior people.
The cool thing about them is their gentle, welcoming hearts towards strangers.
If you go to their tents uninvited, they will most probably welcome you in for tea or coffee.
They make up about 100,000 Islamic people in their country, with almost no Christians.

Please can you pray for them with us?
Pray that God send them witnesses.
Pray that their welcoming hearts welcome Jesus Christ as the Savior that He is.

We are called to be Lights of this world, not just lights to lights.
Please give these precious, unreached people your prayers.
I know they are heard.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. 1 John 5:14
