The Moroccan government has deported twenty-eight Christian workers so far in May, according to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts. The Moroccan government continues political pressures against us Moroccan believers and against the foreign workers, and if it stopped for a while before, it was only to restart again and strongly. Please continue to pray and also to act, because if this continues, soon we’ll not be deported but [we will be] arrested or even killed. Pray that God will encourage the deported believers and enable them to forgive their persecutors, and pray for God’s protection of all Christians in Morocco.
