Mission Moments: Islam

Combating violence, hatred, and the many challenges of Islam with love By Gary Fallesen, founding president, Climbing For Christ “But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!” – Matthew 5:44 (NLT) Brother Rachid. Brother Rachid (the Moroccan spelling for Rasheed) has used the power of God’s Word and prayer to deliver “more than 150,000” Muslims to the Lord through a satellite TV show called Daring Questions. Rachid’s own testimony is a miracle of God: the son of an Imam in Morocco, he was angered by the witnessin... Read more »

Morocco Trek 2017

It is hard to imagine in today’s 99.6-percent Muslim Morocco that this North African country was once Christian. The Berbers were followers of the Way from Roman times until the Islamic conquests of the 7th Century. “The Christians of North Africa were a vast multitude, and with their own eyes they saw the power of God at work in these lovely hills and valleys,” Robin Daniel wrote in This Holy Seed: Faith, Hope and Love in the Early Churches of North Africa. “The people of this land deserve to know their remarkable Christian history. Such a heritage cannot be lost to... Read more »

A View of Morocco

Coffee break on a mountain ridge. Followers in the High Atlas By Sean Ranger, Climbing For Christ member “The reason you want to go is because I have created you to go.” These were the words that the Lord spoke to me more than five years ago as I listened to a challenge being given by an ex-missionary. His message was a bold declaration that many who are called by God to serve in missions tragically do not answer. While the message was hard and convicting, it brought me freedom. Freedom from a lie I had long held, which said God was not interested in giving me the desires ... Read more »

Reaching Morocco

Between the Rock and a hard place By Gary Fallesen, founding president Climbing For Christ “And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” – Matthew 24:14 (ESV) Those words from Jesus inspire me. Knowing that every tribe and language and people and nation will be represented in the kingdom of heaven, according to the Book of Revelation, and that more than 4 out of every 10 people groups in the world remain unreached, according to the Joshua Project, I realize there is work to be...

Expedition Morocco 2015 Trip Report

God speaks in the Atlas Mountains By Gary Fallesen Climbing For Christ   Mohammad holds his Bible while preparing tea for family members. We were in the house of a Mohammad. One of the countless Mohammads you will meet in a country in which 99.6 percent of the population follows the Islamic prophet Muhammad. But this Mohammad is different. He is a follower of Christ. “You showed us the path so we followed,” he tells our companion on this trek into the Atlas Mountains. He makes it sound so simple. But there is more to the story of this Berber man, a devout ... Read more »

Dispatches: Morocco

Expedition Morocco 2015 By Gary F. C4C Sunday, Dec. 20 The man, let’s call him Mohammad, spoke about his persecuted life. His wife was unhappy with the choice he made several years ago and those who give credit in mountain villages, selling seed and fertilizer during planting season with the knowledge they will get repaid at the harvest, cut him off. Still, he endured. Truth will do that to a man. We met many of the first to believe in the Atlas Mountains. Each has a story to tell: persecution, perseverance, ‎trust, faith. The God of the Bible is with them. For others, He is... Read more »

Morocco Trek 2015

Climbing For Christ was invited to North Africa in 2013 by a C4C member who was working with the unreached. There was a huge need for short-term teams willing to put on a backpack and trek into hard-to-reach places. It was made for us! PRAY: For the Berber people, who were Christians until Arabic Islam arrived in the 7th century. Muslim Berbers also practice folk magic. Some individuals have accepted Jesus, but feel isolated and alone. Ask the Spirit to prepare more hearts in a country that is 99.98 percent Muslim and only 0.02 percent Christian. GIVE: To support work among the Berber pe... Read more »

DISPATCHES: Morocco (April 2013)

By Gary Fallesen President, Climbing For Christ “The way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few”  (Matthew 7:14). More workers are needed to deliver the Good News on trails like these in the High Atlas Mountains. Thursday, April 25 Brandy Everts and I have returned to North America, knowing, of course, that this is not our home and that our mission is not complete. We will continue to GO to the ends of the earth, including Morocco, until the work is finished. Michael Heitland left Morocco Wednesday morning, bound for South Africa and some work with ...

PROFILE: Berber People of Morocco

Rather than calling themselves “Berbers,” they refer to themselves by the name of their particular subgroup. The Berbers also call themselves the “Imazighen,” which means “man of noble origin.” Prior to the 7th century, the Berbers had successfully resisted foreign invasions of Islam. The arrival of Arabs in Morocco in the 7th century resulted in the gradual conversion of some Berbers from Christianity to Islam. In 788, about a century after the Arab conquest of North Africa, a series of Moroccan Muslim dynasties began to rule. It was not until the 13th c... Read more »

Morocco

Throughout most of the past thousand years, Morocco has been ruled by a series of dynasties. The most recent, known as the Alaouite dynasty, dates back to the 1600s. Today, the Kingdom of Morocco is what’s known as a constitutional monarchy. This was established in 1957 by Sultan Mohammed V, after Spanish and French rule of the territory. In the late 7th Century, the indigenous Berber peoples of Morocco (along with many other North African peoples and nations) were gradually dominated and subdued during the Arab Muslim conquests. Since that time, Morocco has essentially remained a Musl... Read more »
