“For God so loved [the people of Algeria] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
Algeria is located in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast. Some neighboring countries include Tunisia, Libya, and Morocco. Algeria has an estimated population of almost 40 million. Its capital and largest city is Algiers.
The nation’s official name is the People’s Democratic Republic of Algeria. The national motto is: “By the people and for the people.” Sunni Islam is Algeria’s predominant religion.
It is our prayer today that the people of this desert land will turn to Christ and find springs of water welling up to eternal life.
