Berber, Kabyle in Algeria

The Kabyle name derives from the name of the mountainous region in the north of Algeria, which they traditionally inhabit. The traditional economy of the area is based on orchards and olive trees, and tapestry or pottery. The area was gradually taken over by the French from 1857, despite vigorous local resistance. The armed Algerian revolutionary resistance to French colonialism, the National Liberation Front (FLN) recruited several of its historical leaders in this region.

Ministry Obstacles

Access to the Kabyle Berbers of Algeria is limited.

Outreach Ideas

Gospel television and radio can have good effect in North Africa, not being restricted by national borders.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Jesus among the Kabyle Berbers, that they will be faithful to fellowship together, and will grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Pray they will live a life worthy of their calling in Christ.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for laborers to have wisdom in applying the pattern Jesus gave in Matthew 10:7-14 and Luke 10:5-11, leading to blessing among Kabyle households. Pray they will have an increasing desire for the One who is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life." Pray the Spirit of Christ will satisfy this desire.
