Islam is the state religion and much of society is based on sharia (Islamic) law. Converting from Islam to Christianity is not officially recognised, leading to legal and property problems. Any Kuwaiti who leaves Islam to become a Christian is banned from worshipping at places allocated for foreign Christians. New believers are also pressured by their families and communities to deny Jesus.

Pray: For the Church to find creative ways of sharing the Gospel with Muslims.
