Foreign missionary caught in flagrante delicto in central Morocco
Rabat - Morocco's security services arrested, on Thursday in Amezmiz (outskirts of Marrakech), a foreign missionary carrying out Christian proselytizing activities in flagrante delicto, Interior Ministry said.
The missionary targeted a group of 14 Moroccans, composed mainly of children and women, to spread evangelist creed in the Kingdom and locate new Moroccan nationals for recruitment, it said in a statement.
The operation of the security services took place following information on the organization of a secret meeting to initiate people into Christianity, which would shake Muslims faith and undermine the Kingdom's religious values, it said.
The operation resulted in the seizure of teaching material as well as important proselytizing documents, including laptops, video projectors, CD-ROMs and evangelization brochures.
The statement said the person concerned will be sent out of the country in accordance with the law in force in the kingdom.
Note from the MIssionary in partnership with this group:
I am forwarding an official government communication from Morocco concerning the largest military/police operation of the Moroccan govt. against a small Christian gathering in Central Morocco. 60 military/police including the new Minister of Justice, a Colonel and other high ranking officials came and removed from the house gathering 20 persons including small children and a foreign missionary (Peter McLewin) and brought to the station for interrogation for 14 hours. All laptops, Bibles, CD, cameras and cell phones were confiscated.
Peter McLewin is now at a holding area and is being flown out of Morocco at 2:00a.m. Do lift him up in prayer. We rejoice with him at the opportunity and privilege to experience what he has been teaching but understand how crushed he is mindful of how this will affect the local believers that we are trying to help.
Let us pray in the Spirit for courage and strength in the midst of opposition. Pray for Peter's safe return, healing and restoration.
