Akhdam, Arabized Blacks in Yemen

Akhdam people mostly live in big city slums in fierce poverty and discrimination. Men work as street sweepers, women collect cans and bottles, and beg. There is no justice for them, nor education for their children.

Ministry Obstacles

Sometimes people who have known only severe poverty cannot see past their circumstances to a better future. There is no written Bible for them, although audio and visual resources are available in Arabic, a language that most of them understand.

Outreach Ideas

Every kind of practical help, education, and resources are needed within this poverty stricken unreached people group.

Pray for the followers of Christ

No believers are known to exist among Akhdam people.

Pray for the entire people group

* Pray for many to seek and find Almighty God. * Pray for signs and wonders to confirm His Word. * Pray for many Akhdam families to be blessed spiritually and financially as they allow Him to transform their community.

Scripture Focus

"It will yet be that peoples will come, even the inhabitants of many cities. And the inhabitants of one will go to another saying, Let us go at once to entreat the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I will also go." Zechariah 8:20-21
