Arab, Moroccan of Morocco

In 670 AD, the first Islamic conquest of the North African coastal plain took place, by the Umayyads of Damascus. These men went to what is now Morocco, which they called "Maghreb al Aqsa" or "The Far West". Arabs and Berbers have shared this region since, and at one point ruled most of Northwest Africa. Scholarly advances were made in science, mathematics, astronomy, geography, and medicine.

Ministry Obstacles

Access to Morocco is limited, and essentially non-existent for Christian missionaries.

Outreach Ideas

Christian businessmen may develop opportunities to represent Christ to these Arab / Berber peoples, conducting their businesses in exemplary fashion.

Pray for the followers of Christ

Pray for the believers among the Moroccan Arabs, that they may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way, bearing fruit in every good work. Pray for teachers and materials that will help them grow in the faith.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the Lord will increasingly open the eyes of these people to understand the mercy and grace offered through the finished work of Christ, the free gift of salvation found in no other.
