Persecution Update, March 2019 - TUNISIA

In Tunisia, evangelical Christians number approximately one-tenth of one percent. Though the constitution guarantees freedom of religion, it also states that Islam is the “religion of the state.” Tunisian Muslims who leave Islam to follow Jesus face persecution from family, friends, and the community, and the opposition sometimes turns violent. These new believers often experience loneliness and have few opportunities for fellowship and worship with other Christians. Please pray for grace for our sisters and brothers in Tunisia to stand for Christ in these difficult circumstances.
