About Mauritania

Mauritania is a West African country which is entirely desert apart from the north bank of the Senegal River on its southern border. It is home to 19 People Groups, 15 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. The largest People Group is the Moors who are a Berber people who were converted to Islam in the 7th century by Arab missionaries; the Moors were one of the People Groups who invaded the Iberian Peninsula in the 8th century and set up an Islamic Caliphate. Mauritania is plagued by hostile desert conditions, extreme poverty, racial tensions and perhaps most depressing of all, slavery. Even though slavery has been officially abolished many Moors still own slaves and child slavery is rampant.

MAURITANIA. An indigenous ministry provides loans and livestock so widows can sell animals and their by-products, enabling them to provide for their impoverished children and grandchildren. Aging grandmothers thankful for this livelihood experience the grace of Christ, and any amount will be appreciated for them and other widows to buy animals and feed. Pray for spiritual growth amid Islamic culture hostile to Christ.

MAURITANIA. Parents in predominantly Muslim Mauritania plead with an indigenous ministry to educate their children. Muslim parents have come to Christ over the bridge the ministry school provides, but due to bank fraud it needs help covering teacher salaries and student tuition ($3,204 monthly); the ministry seeks 32 people to give $100 each. Pray that classes will continue.
