BEDOUIN OUTREACH CAMPAIGNS

 

There are 200,000 – 210,000 Bedouins in the Negev (southern) desert in Israel. Most are practicing Muslims. 90,000 live in villages scattered throughout the region. Though some may actually be from Jewish ancestry but have converted to Islam in ancient times. In the spring of 2018 we met one of these impoverished Muslim 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 different ways.

We’ve begun one on one discipleship with those who have come to faith in Jesus-Yeshua as Messiah and Lord. 

One of the women who attended our group Bible study confessed to us that she had a dream of a man in white calling her name and showing her two windows; one where He was and the other that was engulfed with flames. He was beckoning her to come to Him and not succumb to the flames. We were able to explain to her what that meant; that the man in white was Jesus/Yeshua; and we were also able to pray deliverance prayers for her husband who is tormented by demons. Our prayer is that God gives them the courage to embrace Messiah and not be afraid to abandon their Islamic traditions. We want them to know the truth, so their knowledge of the truth can set them free! 

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 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.”

DID YOU KNOW?

There are over 200,000 Bedouins in the Negev (southern) desert in Israel. 90,000 live in tribal (family) villages scattered throughout the region. They are outwardly Muslim, but some are ethnically Jewish, having migrated from Hebron. In addition to Islam, some practice ancient forms of Judaism. These are truly hidden Jews, but God knows who they are.
