The Abu Sharib people are a subgroup of the Tama, a people representing six distinct language groups, who live in Sudan and Chad. The Abu Sharib converted to Islam centuries ago and are very devoted followers of their religion. Many of them also mix witchcraft and the worship of spirits into their daily lives.

Engagement // What’s Happening Now

Only a handful of Abu Sharib have heard about Christ, and no known believers or church planting movements exist among them. In addition, the Bible has not yet been translated into their language. As a result, they are completely isolated from the gospel.

Partnership // Move Beyond

  • Pray that God would call workers to go and minister among the Abu Sharib.
  • Pray that the Holy Spirit would prepare the hearts of this people group to receive the gospel.
