The Bedouin are traditionally Arabic speaking nomads that live in tents throughout the deserts of the Middle East. In recent decades many of these families have settled into small villages within their tribal territories while continuing to shepherd herds of goats, sheep, and sometimes camels. They culturally have stronger ties to their families, tribal customs, and traditions than with conservative Islam — though all would declare themselves Muslim.
The Bedouin are known particularly for their hospitality. Even the poorest family will offer a cup of tea or coffee to their guest. And yet, many times behind the open generosity there is a family suffering from degrees of brokenness and hopelessness. Life is difficult out in the desert and many have accepted this as fate ordained by God and unchangeable. Because the majority of the Bedouin still live in remote areas, they are hard to reach and as a result, many have never met a true believer in their lives. However, what may seem impossible for us, is possible for God.
