Introduction

Language is all-important to Moroccan Berbers because it is the main attribute that unites their pluralistic culture. Though most Berbers are Muslim, some are Jewish and others are Christian. They are ethnically mixed and spread over the country. Moroccan Berbers have been less violent than those in Algeria in their resistance to Arabization, but Berber calls to re-examine Moroccan society have grown louder.


Ministry Obstacles

Access to these people from outsiders is limited.


Outreach Ideas

Gospel radio and television is very helpful in reaching the Berbers of northern Africa. Pray for excellent programming that will draw people to listen and view.


Prayer Focus

Pray for workers needed to sow God's Word into Berber families, healing and strengthening households with God's blessings. Pray the few Uregu Berber Christians will faithfully fellowship together, encouraging and learning from each other. Pray the ancient Berber peoples of Morocco will have freedom to express their culture, and live peacefully with their Arab neighbors.
