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.
Once a year we have to pack up all of our belongings and find a new place to live. Yesterday, we started a journey to look for a new place that has water and grazing for our clan and animals.
Since we live in the desert where is is hot and dry, water and grass are hard to find. Sometimes, we have to travel for days to find a good place to live for the year. Some years if it doesn't rain enough and then we have to move more. I don't like moving very much. When we stay in one place for a long time, I learn the land and find fun things to do. It's hard when we move.
You can imagine how much of an event moving is, since we have six families and lots of animals in our clan. When I say 6 families, I mean A LOT of people! We have moms and dads and kids and their grandparents, aunts and uncles and counsins. So there is a lot of people that move with us!
I hope we don't have to travel a long time to find a place to live this time!
