Atta Berber in Morocco

Rather than calling themselves "Berbers," they refer to themselves by the name of their particular subgroup. Berbers also use the overarching term "Imazighen." The arrival of Arabs in Morocco in the seventh century resulted in the gradual conversion of some Berbers to Islam. It was not until the thirteenth century, however, with the arrival of large numbers of Arabs from the Middle East, that the majority of Berbers accepted Islam, learned the Arabic language and were assimilated into Arab culture.

Ministry Obstacles

Morocco does not provide easy access for Christian influence.

Outreach Ideas

Gospel radio and television beamed to North Africa is very helpful. Materials distributed to North Africans on the docks of southern Europe find their way into the hands of many Berbers.

Scripture Focus

"After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!"  Revelation 7:9-10

Scripture Prayer

Pray that many members of this people group will be part of the vast crowd praising God in heaven.

Prayer Focus

Pray for those who are beginning to find Christ among the Berber communities, that the Lord would protect and nurture their faith and that they would find each other in order to fellowship and grow together. Pray they would be rooted and established in love. Pray the Berbers of Morocco would have access to the good news of Jesus in many forms, hearing clearly who He is in their mother tongue.
