The Kingdom of Morocco is the most westerly of the North African countries known as the Maghreb - the "Arab West". Morocco is a primarily urban country. Currently nearly 60% of the population lives in a city. This trend of urbanization continues to grow at a rate of 2% every year, as more and more Moroccans move out of the countryside into the cities. Morocco is full of beautiful and diverse landscapes, making it easy to overlook the cities and the millions of Moroccans who live there. The suppression of Christian activity is meant to forestall sectarian conflict desired by extremists in other African Muslim countries. There are just a few thousand Moroccan Christians in the country, but they often keep their faith secret, making it hard to know them. Moroccans are expected to be loyal to Islam, king and country. If a Muslim decides to follow Jesus, it is seen as a source of shame to their families and communities. Christians have been accused of being disloyal to the king. Expatriate churches are monitored to make sure Moroccans are not attending services. It is illegal to share the gospel with Muslims, and expatriates have been deported after being accused of this.

Praise Report
Praise God for Moroccan Christians who meet in house churches although they do not have official recognition and permission, risking their lives (The Bible, Acts 15:26)

Prayer Request
Pray that peace will prevail throughout the nation, and those seeking to commit violence will be stymied. Pray that the country’s leaders will fight these conflicts with wisdom and good decision making (The Bible, Proverbs 13:10).
Pray that the church in Morocco with isolated believers will find safe ways to meet with others, and protect believers from Muslims backgrounds from pressure and attack (The Bible, 1 Peter 5:9).

Call to Salvation
Pray that this dry land will be flooded with streams of God’s living water. Pray that the media and online resources will reach individuals in isolated regions and the following-up resulting in many people knowing the Lord (The Bible, Ephesians 1:9).

Western Sahara has been occupied throughout its history. Once under Spanish rule, the land was later divided between Morocco and Mauritania. When Mauritania removed its claim, Morocco advanced. The Polisario Front contested Morocco's occupation, which led to decades of guerrilla warfare, ending with a 1991 cease-fire. The promised referendum, in which Western Sahara would be given a choice between independence and integration into Morocco, has yet to be offered. The earthen wall, erected by the Moroccan government, outlines the land that Morocco successfully occupied. The Polisario, and the Saharawi people, continue their call for independence and the ability to return to their homeland. Decades of conflict and continued disputes have caused much suffering. Considered almost entirely Muslim, most of the Saharawi people have little to no possibility of hearing the Gospel, though there are a handful of isolated believers. The plight of the refugees has opened doors for humanitarian and Christian aid, providing opportunities to spread the love of Christ.

Praise Report
Praise God for the opportunities to spread the love of Christ in Western Sahara. It is estimated that there are only a few Christian workers in the whole country, making it so that about 80% of its population have never heard the Gospel (The Bible, 1 Thessalonians 3:2).

Prayer Request
Pray that God will raise up more workers for the harvest in Western Sahara and that He will protect and encourage the few workers that are there (The Bible, Matthew 9:37).
Pray that there will be a miraculous resolution of the decades-long conflict with Morocco and hatred will be overcome by love (The Bible, Proverbs 10:12).

Call to Salvation
Pray the power of the Gospel will be made known among the 100,000 Saharawi refugees in Algeria (The Bible, Psalm 31:2).
