Aimaq people of Afghanistan

Operation World states,”There are six Aimaq tribes to the west, of nomadic background WITH FEW, IF ANY, BELIEVERS AMONG THEM.

How are these tribes to hear?

The Lord alone knows and must provide the resources.

Aimaq, Taimani of Afghanistan

From ancient times, Afghanistan has been the crossroads of Asia. The ethnically mixed Aimaq tribes formerly stretched from northeastern Iran into western and central Afghanistan, where they still reside. Aimaq are known as formidable warriors. They live semi-nomadic lives, traveling seasonally to graze their herds and/or subsisting as sedentary farmers and carpet weavers in mud-brick villages.

Ministry Obstacles
Strong tribal and family loyalties create difficult barriers for the message of God’s grace found in Jesus. In addition, the Aimaq live in remote areas of Afghanistan. Scripture resources are needed in the Aimaq language.

Outreach Ideas
Christians can serve the Aimaq peoples by helping with physical and material needs, such as improved access to health care and education for the children.

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray for the few believers among the Aimaq, that the Lord will make their love increase and overflow for each other, and that they may be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray the Lord will soften the hearts of the Taimani Aimaq toward the gospel message, and that they may hunger for the grace found in Jesus.

Scripture Focus
“Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.” Psalm 96:3
