Pray that the Bedawi people will know God's great love!
Hi, my name is Bedawi. I'm 13 years old.
My home is in the country of Egypt. I live in the Eastern desert along the Nile River.
See if you can find where I live in this map...
This is the tent my family lives in.
All month long I spend time preparing special crafts to take to the market and trade. I love making things like straw mats and woven rugs. I take time to make sure each item is perfectly made to sell.
Once we have enough items we sometimes have to travel several hours to a marketplace. The trip to the market is always fun. (except for the bumpy camel ride!) I collect different plants on our trip to make medicines when we need them. It's very hot, so we always make sure we have lots of water.
The market is always busy with people from all over. People come from hours away to sell and buy things. Last month I sold 3 straw mats, 3 baskets and 2 rugs! We had lots of money to buy food. I also got a new outfit and a juicy piece of fruit! I can't wait to go back next month!
