Even though the Omani government promotes religious tolerance, sharia (Islamic) law influences everyday life. This means freedom of religion is allowed if it doesn’t affect Islamic customs. Evangelising in public is also forbidden. Those who leave Islam to follow Jesus still must marry under Islamic rites and if they get a divorce, the Omani Christian will lose custody of their children.
Pray: That those who leave Islam will be strengthened in their faith in Jesus.
