Somali in Northeast Africa, Ethiopia and Middle East
Over sixteen million Somali are scattered across eight countries in Northeast Africa, and in the Middle East. Also over five million live in Ethiopia. Nearly all Somali are Shafiite Muslims; however, numerous beliefs and traditions have been incorporated in their religious practices. Access to education is very limited among Somali children, and poor economic, geographical and social conditions such as drought, famine and war, have caused serious problems, with malnutrition alone accounting for thousands of deaths since the 1970s.
• For God to raise up Christian teachers who will work among the Somali and share Christ’s love with them.
• For strong local churches to be built.
• For the Somali would be receptive to the Gospel.
