Yemen Yemen was the site of the great cities of the Queen of Sheba, who traded gifts with King Solomon. Religion: Muslim 99.94%, Christian 0.05%, and Jewish 0.01%. Islam is the official religion, and the legal system is based on Shariah Law. Ideological Influence: Islam Head of State: President Ali Abdallah Salih Persecution: Christianity was strong by 400 A.D., but was almost completely wiped out by the Muslim conquest in the 7th century. It is illegal for non-Muslims to proselytize and for Muslims to convert to Christianity. Due to social pressures, it is dangerous for Yemenis to become believers. Missionary Opportunity: Through radio broadcasts, tactful evangelism and other factors, perhaps 100 or more Yemenis have trusted in Christ. Most Christians are expatriates, many of whom are Ethiopians. Others are Westerners and South and East Asians who work in secular jobs or serve with a humanitarian NGO (nongovernmental organization) that is permitted to minister in the country. A church in Aden was restored to Christians for worship and wider community service. There is also a need for Yemeni Arabic, Soqotri and Mahri Bibles.
Haven't read through all these posts in their entirety, but there is something I have noticed.There aren't really any western nations mentioned.The nearest we get is Colombia.There aren't any European nations mentioned, unless you include Turkey.At the same time, that is not surprising.Thanks for the info. Good research. It shows your care for the body of Christ.Remeber the prisoners, as if chained with them, those who are mistreated, since you yourselves are in the body, Heb 13v3.
