OVERVIEW OF MALI

MaliAfter the French military intervention in January 2013, the threat of radical Islamic groups has been averted, at least temporarily, but in the north, there is still no normal church life possible. Presence and infrastructure of Christianity have been largely destroyed and the Christians who fled are afraid to return. Those who do return, find their properties are occupied by Muslims. Even though most Malian Christians live in the southern part of the country, they feel threatened by the radical Islamic groups in the north.

PRAYER POINTS

  • For God’s hand of protection for the few Christians who return to the northern part of Mali and have to start from scratch
  • That training of new believers will provide increased knowledge in the Word
  • That stability and peace will return to all parts of the country
