Algeria is officially a Muslim nation but the Lord is doing an amazing thing in our generation… In 1962 the country won its independence from France in a brutal war that cost one million
lives. Further civil unrest followed in the 1990s. Although incidents still take place, the political situation has greatly improved and people are longing to leave the dark decades behind.
Around 1981, God began to move in an amazing way amongst the seven million Kabyle people. This people group, mostly living in the mountains east of the capital, has long su$ered suppression
and discrimination and many are tired of Islam’s religion. A handful of new believers braved persecution and started preaching the gospel in village after village. God’s Spirit has been clearly at work up to this day. Many report healings and miraculous signs, but the greatest miracle is the numerous lives changed by Christ’s healing presence.
Today, there are an estimated 60,000 Kabyle believers in the country who worship the Lord Jesus. This is the fastest growing church movement in the Muslim World. Some speak of the ‘Kabylia
awakening.’ Many have been converted through Arabic language Christian satellite TV; others through dreams and visions of Jesus. But the unfinished task is still huge. The churches need their
leaders to be trained, Outside the Kabyle mountains, among 30 million unreached people, there are only around 1,000 believers gathering in 25-30 mainly small fellowships throughout Algeria.
