Introduction

Algerian people have suffered very much in their history from French colonial exploitation to wars of liberation and civil wars. Numbers of Algerians have migrated to Egypt where agriculture still employs almost one-third of the nation, and cities are expanding.


Ministry Obstacles

Algerian people in Egypt are tightly knit Muslims in a closed society. They naturally do not accept feedback from Christians, so reaching this spiritually needy people will be a challenge, but not for Almighty God who loves these people.


Outreach Ideas

Since love casts out fear, there is much opportunity for God’s love to permeate this fear-based society. Opportunities for practical, loving helps abound in Egypt among needy Algerians.


Pray for the Followers of Christ

Pray that the Holy Spirit will show the few Algerian believers ways to intentionally gather together to regularly sow the Word into their hearts (Heb 10:19-25). Simple things grow, simple things multiply—pray for simple church and small groups to be a fruitful hallmark of Algerian believers (Acts 2:41-47).


Pray for the Entire People Group

Pray for Almighty God to pour out His Holy Spirit on the families of Algerian Arabs in Egypt, especially the children and youth. Ask God to raise up and send out a new generation of fruitful, multiplying witnesses to these people who need to know the Savior.
