Missions in North Africa

Culture:
North Africa is predominantly Arab and relatively more developed. Many residents identify more with the Middle East than they do with the larger part of the continent.


Religion:
The Islamic influence in the area is significant, and North Africa, along with Somalia, Djibouti and the Middle East, is also a part of the Arab World.

Islam 90.5%
Christianity 5.2%
Other  4.3%

Critical Issues:
Issues that are crippling the continent are just as relevant in the north as the south – Egypt and Libya are suffering from greatly increased rates of HIV and Aids, just as Southern Africa is.

Why Attend the 2013 Retreat

“I am coming to the retreat as I serve here in Kaposvar alone and believe I need to take time to gain insights with other missionaries and to be refreshed.”

“For a time of rest and relaxation.  To “refuel” and come back energized and ready to keep moving forward.”

“I’m seeking a bit of rest; a chance to get away and get some perspective on life here.  I’m seeking some time to get refreshed physically, and spiritually.
