Pray for Christians in Morocco

A family of New Zealand Christians who were working at an orphanage in Morocco have suddenly been evicted (TVNZ news report). They have concerns for the children who they are caring for because there are no clear plans for ongoing care for the 33 children.

There have also been other deportations and arrests of Christians at Bible study groups. Compass Direct News reports that the crackdown on evangelical Christians may be an attempt by the Moroccan government to balance recent actions taken against Shiite Islamic missionary activity in the country.

There is a fragile religious tension in Morocco and we should pray that Christians are not further restricted and that the gospel is able to spread in this country.
