Deaf in Morocco

We often talk about people groups who haven't had the opportunity to hear the gospel. In this case, it is the literal truth. The Deaf living in Morocco find themselves without many opportunities, spiritual or otherwise. Morocco doesn't have many resources for this community. As a result, the vast majority of Deaf children (about 85 percent) don't attend school. The school system can't provide the materials or the staff to help Deaf people learn. Therefore, Deaf people throughout Morocco—no matter their age—face similar challenges. While there is a Moroccan sign language, they are forced to teach themselves this language via videos and internet sites.

Ministry Obstacles

Like the rest of the population in Morocco, the majority of the Deaf follow Islam. With no Scriptures available in Moroccan Sign Language, they have few opportunities to find out about the Savior.

Outreach Ideas

There is a need for special schools for the Deaf in Morocco. Compassionate believers can fill this void.

Scripture Focus

"And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying, Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth."  Revelation 5:8-10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for many in this people group to begin to worship and serve the Lord of lords.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the Deaf in Morocco to have the chance to understand and respond to the gospel. Pray for gospel materials to be produced in Moroccan Sign Language. Pray for the Deaf in Morocco to be blessed with the joy and peace offered by the Lord of lords.
