Berber, Rif of Morocco

The word "Rif" is an Arabic word meaning "the edge of cultivated area." The Northern Shilha of Algeria and Morocco, known as the "Rif Berbers," are numerous tribes of tough and hardened people eking out an existence on the harsh, uninviting slopes of the Rif Mountains. The Berbers are indigenous to north Africa west of the Nile river, with the densest concentration in Morocco.

Ministry Obstacles

Morocco is quite difficult to enter for Christian workers. Creative approaches are needed.

Outreach Ideas

The Jesus film, God's Story video, and Gospel radio are available in the language of the Rif Berbers. Pray for workers.

Pray for the followers of Christ

The Lord is building his church among the Berbers. Pray the believers will be properly taught the Scriptures, that they will fully comprehend the Gospel of grace, and become mature and settled in the faith.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Lord will reveal himself in ways appropriate to the Berbers, perhaps including dreams and visions. Pray the Berbers be given hearts to seek him.
