The Islamic Republic of Mauritania lies on the Atlantic coast of North Africa. It is expansively a desert country and only 0.4 percent of its land is arable. With vast areas of its territory as a largely unpopulated desert, laws are very difficult to enforce. Reportedly IS, Al Qaeda and Boko Haram run terrorist training camps in the country. Only 52 per cent of Mauritanians are literate. Women fare worse with only 42 per cent being able to read and write, while 63 per cent of men have this essential life skill. Frequent droughts and floods are the main cause for scarce resources and malnutrition. Slavery and institutionalized racism are still common here. Those who convert from Islam lose citizenship and may be subjected to the death penalty by law. As a result, the state is a major source of Christian persecution, and that persecution is increasing. The country is one of the poorest Arab nations with a range of social and political problems, including racism, slavery, illiteracy, child marriage and female genital mutilation.

Praise Report
Praise God for those who are trying to educate the illiterate adults and the children in Mauritania that they will be able to learn the truth about Jesus Christ (The Bible, Proverbs 13:14).

Prayer Requests
Pray that illiterate believers in Mauritania will understand the love of Christ as they seek God with limited access to Scripture (The Bible, 2 Timothy 3:15).

Pray that those suffering under the bondage of slavery will understand freedom in Christ And experience liberation in Him (The Bible, John 8:36).

Call to Salvation
Pray that Christians will find ways to share their faith and God will give them words to say and protect them from blasphemy accusations (The Bible, Psalm 27:12).
