Pressure Increases on Christians in Small Gulf State

[159] prayers in [8] nations have been posted for Young Followers of Christ.

Front-line workers report that new believers in a small Gulf nation are under increasing pressure after one of their leaders was deported for his faith. “Most of the local Christians are young in faith and also young in age,” a front-line worker explained. “The community [members] had grown a bit relaxed and weren’t expecting anything like this to happen, so it caught them by surprise.” The front-line worker asks for Christians around the world to pray that young followers of Christ in small Arabian Gulf nations will remain strong and not give into fear.
