Tigre People in Eritrea: Although the 1.8 million Tigrinya people in Eritrea are mostly Orthodox or Coptic Christian, there are 743,000 Eritrean Tigres who practise a form of Folk Islam. Their beliefs include animal sacrifices and rain-making rituals. Sacrifices are offered whenever they think their sins are numerous. The Jesus Film is available in their unwritten language, but prayer is key to reaching this people group with the Gospel.
