A Nomad refers to the migrant worker coming from all over the 10-40 window to work in oil-rich countries thoughout the Middle East. It is estimated there are 20 million migrant workers. Once a recruit signs their labor contract, they become like a nomad, moving from place to place (labor camps), working wherever directed. The majority of the migrant workers are unskilled and uneducated, coming from some of the poorest regions on earth. They are desperate to provide for their families and are willing leave their homes and villages for years without seeing them.
VISION of NOMADS:
Equip an underground ministry of impoverished migrant workers, who come from some of the most oppressed, persecuted places on the planet, to bring hope back to their communities.
A labor camp is a community of people from countries such as India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal and Bangladesh, who congregate together in communal living quarters where they live, eat, breathe and sleep together. These are their temporary homes away from home. Labor camps are set in the shadows of some of the wealthiest regions on earth and in some of the most remote. Some make less than US$6 per day, working 12 hours per day, 6 days per week and living in a single room with up to 12 others. These camps are a melting pot of world religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Sikhism.

WHAT DO WE DO?
Nomads have little means to leave the labor camps so we go to them every week, night in and night out. Our gatherings take place wherever permitted. During these gatherings we heal, deliver, disciple and equip these Nomads. Overall we reach over 700 individuals a week with plans to reach many more once funds are raised for a regular meeting place and transportation to and from the camps.
