The Islamic Republic of Mauritania has a very small church. Not only do new believers have to cope with life in a harsh environment under even harsher poverty, they also have to discover their new faith with few local role models and examples of how to follow Christ in their context.
Christians from a Muslim background can experience a great deal of persecution from both family and members of their society if their faith is discovered.
With all of these challenges, it can be difficult for Christians to hold onto their faith. Please pray that their faith would remain strong in spite of all of these obstacles.
