In the sixteenth century, the land of the Fur was called Southern Nubia, now it is called Dafur, which in Arabic means Homeland of the Fur. Sudan is home to large populations of both Arab and African people groups. There are over 1.3 million Fur people living in this region and predominantly practice Islam, much due to Arab influence.
Engagement // What's Happening Now
There are few Christians in Sudan and few if any, workers among them. Pray for church planting initiatives as well as compassion ministries who can meet the physical and mental needs of Fur people.
Sustainability // The Bigger Story
Pray for a full translation of the Bible in their language, that as access to the gospel is provided so is access to the full scripture.
Partnership // Move Beyond
Please spend a few minutes in prayer for the following:
- Pray for missionaries called to establish churches in this region.
- Pray for opportunities and open doors to share the gospel to the Fur.
