Among the large expatriate community (predominantly from South and East Asia and the Middle East, but also the West and Africa), a considerable number of active Christians meet formally and informally. Pray that expat believers might have courage and wisdom to share their faith outside their cultural group as well as a sense of Gods purpose in bringing them to Bahrain. One area of great potential is in education. The internationalization of education opens many opportunities, since locals prize good education and much schooling is in English. Pray for believing teachers who will be witnesses in their jobs.
