Brunei has an extremely high level of economic wealth, however, Christians are treated like second-class citizens. The country is governed by sharia (Islamic) law. Churches must be registered and are heavily monitored. There are three registered churches that can display crosses. Other public displays of Christian symbols and the public celebration of Christian holidays (like Christmas) are illegal.

Pray: For believers in Brunei to continue to be bold in their faith and for the Church to continue to grow.
