Mauritania is completely dominated by Islam. Poverty is rampant in Mauritania and the activity and aid of Arab countries from the Gulf region have been significant in the influence and prominence of more austere and intolerant versions of Islam becoming increasingly visible in the country. The rights of Christians are rarely protected and those who leave Islam to follow Jesus lose everything.

Pray: For the hearts of Muslims who are persecuting the Church – may they encounter Jesus and be saved.
