Introduction / History

The northern tribes of Yemen may be referred to as the Sanaani Arabs. They reside in the northern mountains and north-eastern deserts, as well as around the capital city of Sana'a. Some have migrated to other countries, specifically Saudi Arabia, Canada and Turkey.


What Are Their Lives Like?

In Turkey, Northern Yemeni Arabs must learn a different language and find regular employment.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Islam is the main religion. Muslims know Jesus (Isa) is the Messiah (al Masih) sent by God, embodying his Word, but view Christianity as a campaign to destroy their families, communities and way of life. They need a personal encounter with the Risen Lord who has conquered death.


What Are Their Needs?

The Northern Yemeni Arab people need to put their trust and identity in the hands of the loving God of Creation who sent his son to make it possible for them to enter the Kingdom of God.


Prayer Points

Pray for the few believers among the Northern Yemeni Arabs, that they would become effective and fruitful in sowing God's Word among their families and communities to fuel a movement of God's blessing spreading from household to household.
Pray for a movement to Jesus to multiply among the families and communities of the northern tribes of Yemen, that Yemeni families would increasingly experience the righteousness and forgiveness found only in Jesus Christ.
