Shoreline City, Northern Africa

Shoreline City has inhabitants from many different social and economic backgrounds. People often move to the city from villages to gain employment. Marra grew up in a village but now lives in and operates a parking garage in the city with her husband and son. She and her husband cannot read or write, and they have lived their lives without access to the good news about Jesus. Their bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen are all in one small room. Despite living in poverty, their greatest problem is their spiritual poverty. Like 99% of the people living in Shoreline City, Marra lives without the ability to “draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith” (Hebrews 10:22 ESV). Pray for Marra to have an open heart to hearing about Jesus from a believer who is trying to use creative means to share with her. Pray that she and her family will experience the “blessed assurance” that can only come through Jesus.
