Pray for the Northern Kurds of Bahrain
Northern Kurds of Bahrain
Religion: Islam - Sunni
The Northern Kurds of Bahrain, are Unengaged and Unreached. Since WW1, Kurds began to migrate from the violence and turmoil of southeastern Turkey to the relative calm and prosperity of the island of Bahrain in the Persian Gulf. The Kurds in Bahrain live mostly in the northern part of this nation.
The Kurds of Bahrain have been in a weak position both socially and economically. Though ill-paid for their unskilled manual labor, they cannot press for better conditions for fear of deportation. Many in Bahrain are not citizens. Many Kurds take any job they can find to feed their families. The traditional occupation of the Kurds has been the herding of goats and sheep.
Family is an essential part of Kurdish culture. The relationship between family members is close. The clan and community are more important than the individual in traditional Kurdish society.
Kurdish women and girls are supposed to dress modestly. Dressing immodestly would dishonor her family. Respecting older people is integral part of Kurdish culture. Hospitality and family honor are significant features.
Will you pray that believers will go and share the gospel with the Kurds of Bahrain? Will you pray and see if GOD is calling you to go?
