North Africa – The International Needs Network ministries continue its efforts to reach the North Africans with the Gospel.

IN-Network works with others in the area to write, print and distribute Bible correspondence courses in North Africa. Over 4,400 are enrolled in their program.

Members visit and disciple those who study the course, print and distribute a bi-monthly evangelical magazine and do translation work.

Leaders expressed hopes for the program’s expansion both in terms of numbers enrolled and Arabic countries into which it is sent. The group will put more effort into planting churches and planning retreats in the future.

Currently, the North African government struggles to maintain the state’s religion – Islam. Persecution of believers and intimidation of seekers has steadily increased over the last 30 years.
