Berber, Filala of Morocco

Greek, Roman and Phoenician texts make reference to the forerunners of the Berber peoples, located in the eastern portion of Egypt. "Berber" is a generic name given to numerous heterogeneous ethnic groups who share similar cultural, political and economic practices. Contrary to the romantic, popular image that portrays Berbers as nomadic people who cross the desert on camels, their main activity is sedentary agriculture. Today, significant Berber income comes from the large number of immigrants in Europe, especially in France.

Ministry Obstacles

Morocco is not an easy place for Christians to enter, and to work.

Outreach Ideas

Perhaps Berbers working in Europe will encounter Spirit-filled Christians, those who seriously follow Christ, and who will be able to assist Berbers as they also seek Christ.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the followers of Jesus who will soon be apparent among the Filala Berbers, that they will clearly understand and rest upon the Gospel of grace, not mixing it with the requirement to do good works. Pray they will understand the need to live obediently to Christ, as a result of his forgiveness and presence within.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray for the Berbers to provide adequately for their families. Pray that the indigent, the widow and orphan, may be cared for.
