There are 200,000 – 210,000 Bedouins in the Negev (southern) desert in Israel. 90,000 live in villages scattered throughout the region. In the spring of 2018 we met one of these impoverished Bedouin tribes consisting of 300 families (1,500 people). Since then we’ve met other tribes and the Lord is opening up doors for us to share the Gospel and help them in many different ways.

The Lord also brings them to us in weekly women’s meetings where we teach the Bible and offer health counseling that includes teachings on the spiritual roots of diseases. This has opened up great opportunities to pray with the women and see the Lord touch them deeply. 

The Bedouins live on pennies a day, yet they believe in working and not receiving handouts. They long to see their children educated and hard working. They have a vision for educating and bettering themselves in order to be productive members of society. 

These people are some of the “poorest of the poor” that Jesus/Yeshua talks about in Matthew 25:40. “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.”
