Opportunity to Share the Gospel Among Unreached People Group

[192] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Shabak people.

VOM workers are seeing doors of opportunity open for ministry to an unreached and unengaged people group in Iraq. The Shabak of Iraq are Islamic with very little Christian presence among them. They experience harsh discrimination from other Iraqis and Kurds, including violent attacks, which presents a barrier to reaching them with the gospel. But VOM workers are seeing hopeful signs of opportunities to share the gospel with this group. “God has opened the door to provide aid projects and Discovery Bible Studies to the Shabak people group,” a VOM worker said. “Please intercede on behalf of this people group.” Pray for the gospel to advance among the Shabak people, and pray that many of them would find salvation in Christ.
