Arab, Moroccan in Morocco
In 670 AD, the Umayyads of Damascus completed the first Islamic conquest of the North African coastal plain, settling in what is now Morocco, which they called “Maghreb al Aqsa” or “The Far West.” Arabs have ruled this region ever since, including the original Berber tribal groups of North Africa, some of whom were Christians before the Arab invasion. This cultural mix is honored for scholarly advances in science, mathematics, astronomy, geography, and medicine.
Although Morocco allows people from other religions to have religious freedom, the King of Morocco has declared that all native Moroccans are Sunni Muslims. It is considered a betrayal of family and heritage to worship Jesus as God.
Pray for Christian businessmen to apply the Matt 10 and Luke 10 pattern for finding persons of peace and blessing whole households among these Arab/Berber peoples.
