Kuwait is an oil-rich wedge of desert between Iraq and Saudi Arabia.  They became independent in 1961 and are a key ally to the West.  Sunni Islam is the state religion with a large Shi’a minority.  Religious tolerance is higher here than in most of the region.

The underground Kuwaiti Church has been growing.  Satellite television is probably the most powerful tool in reaching not only Kuwait but the entire Gulf region.  There are several Arabic-language Christian channels available.  My church supports several of them as do many other missions.

Kuwaiti Arabs have been increasingly exposed to Christians through travel, business connections and students studying abroad.  Expat Christians have also had a good reputation thanks to a hundred years of medical mission history.  You never know how your own actions as a Christian can effect others, even sending a ripple effect which expands over many generations and geographical areas.
