Pray for our World: Algeria

Algeria lies between Morocco and Libya in the Saharan Desert of Africa.  Most people are Arab.  There is a fast-growing economy due to the oil and gas reserves, but most of the wealth does not reach the ordinary citizens.  Freedom of religion has been dwindling and persecution increasing.  97% of the population is Muslim, with the rest considered mostly non-religious.  Christians are almost non-existent.  However there is the Church of Algeria, which is the only one officially recognized.

Most households there have satellite tv, common in this part of the world.  This is crucial because many Christian programs are able to be broadcast into their homes.  My church and the mission organizations I’m involved in both support programs for satellite tv in this area of the world.  God can use us to reach the world!
