In the Northeast African country of Mauritania, Islamic extremists have created online hit-lists of Christian leaders.
Greg Kelley of World Mission says, “It’s basically a call to warfare against people that are propagating and sharing the Gospel in Mauritania. There’s a number of key Christian leaders that we’re working with whose names are on this list. And it’s just a green light to take them out. Obviously, we need to pray for God to protect them because these are the key people that are leading the Church of Jesus Christ and advancing the Gospel in these places.”
Christians in Mauritania
The church in Mauritania is a small one. Kelley says almost the entire population is considered unreached by the Gospel. People who leave Islam to follow Jesus often face persecution from their own families. Read a prayer request about religious freedom in the June 22 entry here.
