Domari in Egypt: Domari is the Arabic dialect of the Romani language. There are Domari Romani villages and communities in Egypt. Some Domari live in cities while others are nomadic. The quality of health care, nutrition, housing and education is poor, especially for those in refugee camps. Pray that Domari families and community leaders will seek the Lord's face and enjoy his blessings.
Local partner Habeeb Kamal seeks to share the gospel with unreached people groups in Egypt, South Sudan and Sudan, including preaching, teaching and discipling believers, and sharing the gospel with people he meets on a day-to-day basis.

A CMS mission partner who is a lawyer serves persecuted Christians in the Middle East and North Africa using his legal qualifications, skills and expertise. As he advocates for religious freedom across the region, pray for authorities to respect the right to freedom of religion, for charges against Christians to be dropped and convictions overturned, and for churches that are closed to be permitted to reopen.
One couple have been getting more involved with ex-pat Arabs from a Christian background. One week they told the story of the 10th plague of Exodus to a small group. A new participant turned up, so they hesitated, thinking it may be awkward to tell this story, but it was the 'next one' on the list. So, they were humbled and encouraged to see the engagement of all who attended, including the new person. God's Word does what He needs it to! Pray for local people to join this group.
Pray for the team who are building meaningful relationships with people in the Middle East through social media. The Ephraim Project engages Christians worldwide to volunteer their time to befriend people from this region through English conversations online and sharing Jesus with them. Pray for God's leading as they engage in spiritual conversations, and that our team would be a source of encouragement and support during times of local unrest and a guide towards the Father’s comfort. Pray for people in areas where Internet access has recently been cut off and for their connections to be restored.
