Zekara Berber in Morocco

The Berbers lived in North Africa long before the arrival of the Arabs and Islam, and had a Christian heritage. Between the 11th and 13th centuries, two great Berber dynasties - the Almoravids and the Almohads - controlled large parts of Spain, as well as north-west Africa. In Morocco, about 40% acknowledge a Berber identity, though many more have Berber ancestry. Many Berber children drop out of school because they are taught in what, to them, is a foreign language - Arabic.

Ministry Obstacles

The Berbers have been removed from the Christian faith for many centuries, and are not likely to quickly learn the ways of Christ.

Outreach Ideas

Christians need to find ways to build friendships and trust with the ancient Berber peoples.

Scripture Focus

"And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign."  Revelation 11:16-17

Scripture Prayer

Pray for today’s people group to worship the true God for His great power and sovereignty over the universe.

Prayer Focus

There are few followers of Jesus among the Zekara Berbers. Pray they would find each other and faithfully fellowship together, becoming firmly established upon the truths of Scripture. Pray the Berbers of Morocco would once again find the faith of many of their ancestors, faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God.
