Northern African and Middle Eastern Unengaged Peoples

The Ghomara Berber tribe of Morocco is composed of 76,000 people located in the Rif Mountains. They practice folk Islam, and very few have ever heard of the hope of Christ. They take great pride in their tribal culture, and marriage within the tribe is obligatory to preserve the traditions and community. This tightknit community makes it difficult for outsiders to come in and new ideas to be heard. Right now, they are unengaged and unreached, meaning that they have no access to a gospel witness. Praise God that they have various Bible resources available in their language! However, the majority of the Ghomara aren’t aware of these. Pray blessings upon their farming and families, and pray that they will find a mustard seed of faith in the name of Jesus. “[Jesus] said therefore, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches'” (Luke 13:18-19 ESV).
