The Arabization of the Middle East and North Africa began in the seventh and eleventh centuries, causing the displacement of many tribes and pre-Islamic Saharan nomadic groups. These invasions overran and absorbed the weaker black African farmers who lived in and around oases and trading centers. The Mongallese were one of these groups. They are Black African and Arab. They speak Creole Arabic and live in South Sudan.
One obstacle is the distinct dialect of the Mongallese Arabs. Another obstacle is their devotion to Mohammed and Islam. They see him as the "seal of the prophets" and Jesus as a prophet second to Mohammed and the Bible as "corrupted." The constant fighting in South Sudan prevents Christian witness.
Radio and television evangelism is relatively private. So, too, are medical missions. A Mongallese Arabic Bible is needed. The church in South Sudan needs to witness with boldness and grace.
"And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient?" Hebrews 3:18
Pray that today’s people group would enter into God’s spiritual rest by trusting in and obeying His Son.
Pray for an end to civil war. Pray for radio and television evangelism. Pray that Christian physicians would go as witnesses. Pray for the production, distribution and acceptance of the Bible and Christian evangelistic literature in the Mongallese language.
