( - Sixteen Christian foreign workers in an orphanage in Ain Leuh, Morocco have been ordered to leave the country, leaving 33 children abandoned.

The order was given due to allegations that the staff were "trying to make them Christian." The Village of Hope orphanage cares for children abandoned by their parents and society.

A staff member has stated, "We have always been open about our faith to the authorities.... 33 children have just been abandoned again by the actions of the Moroccan state.... Watching the children be told by their parents that they had to leave, that they would maybe never see them again, is the most painful thing I have ever witnessed."

We encourage everyone to read the official press release from the parents at for detailed information. (Source: Village of Hope)

Pray that these foster parents will be allowed to return to their children. Ask God to provide others to love and care for the children at this time. Pray that those ordered to leave will find strength in Jesus.
