In November 2017, the Algerian authorities shut down a church in Aïn Turk, claiming that it had been used to "illegally print Gospels and publications intended for evangelism" (for details, see this report). On June 10th, 2018, the governor of Oran Province signed an order reopening the church (click here). However, the bookstore operated by the church was not allowed to reopen at the time, with claims that it was being used for evangelistic activities.
On December 13th, a court had overridden the governor's closure order and allowed the bookstore to reopen. Praise God for this court ruling, asking Him to wonderfully bless this opportunity to spread His Word throughout the region.
