Robbyn Booker: (Africa/Middle East) Ceuta, Spain is a Spanish city in North Africa on the eastern portion of the peninsula which makes up the Strait of Gibraltar.  The area has been flooded with Moroccan immigrants.  Pastor Pedro recently opened his center to help the refugees.  Eighty percent of Ceuta is Muslim.  The streets are full of hundreds of teenagers and children who are homeless.  The pastor is seeking local officials’ permission to allow these children to sleep in his center. Please pray Pastor Pedro will find favor with government officials and for God’s provision!
