During the reporting period, violence increased dramatically in Algeria and a dozen churches were closed. Algeria rose 20 positions on the 2019 World Watch List. The main source of violence is the relatives of Christian converts. Christians are becoming bolder in their faith and have even been imprisoned for sharing their faith on social media.
Pray: For God to give peace and wisdom to church leaders whose churches have been closed, as well as to those who are facing church closures.
