Niger is in the middle of the Sahara Desert in Africa.  It is one of the world’s poorest nations and near the bottom of the Human Development Index.  Most people barely survive on agriculture and livestock.  Droughts and locust plagues have devastated the land.  There is religious freedom with very little restriction on missions, but tensions are high between Muslim and Christian groups.  Many churches have been planted with an emphasis on humanitarian aid.  Yet, Muslim groups put pressure on believers, despite the aid the Christians bring.  Many believers are illiterate and have little Bible teaching available, and become isolated.  Pray for their education, their humanitarian needs, and to find fellowship and encouragement among other believers.
