God provided once again, but notice their lack of thankfulness to the One who freed them from slavery and provided for all their needs. Are you sometimes like that? Let’s pray for gratitude to our provider this Christmas Season!
Thank the Lord for all He has given you, both physical and spiritual.
Lake Aswan now sits where part of the Nile River used to flow. That has been the case since the 1960s when the High Aswan Dam was built in southern Egypt. Some of the Kharga people now live along the shores of Lake Aswan along an old slave-trading route that once connected Egypt with Sudan.
Almost all Kharga people are Muslims. This people group doesn’t realize they’re enslaved to a religion that can’t save them. There are 26,000 Kharga people living in Egypt, but less than 50 of them have found freedom from sin in Jesus Christ. What makes the Khargas hard to reach is that they don’t stay in one place. Most members of this tribe are wandering herders who raise sheep, goats and camels. Only in recent years have some members of this people group begun to settle down along the shores of Lake Aswan. Farming is new to them.
Bible translation work is complete in a language they can understand, but only Scripture portions have been printed.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Pray that God would lead a mission agency to print a complete Bible in the Kharga dialect. Pray that they will soon have gospel recordings and radio broadcasts available to them. Ask God to create a hunger for Christ among the Kharga tribe.
