The Sultanate of Oman is on the southeast coast of Arabia and the strategic tip of the peninsula that dominates the entrance to the Arabian/Persian Gulf. The majority are Arabs but approximately 25% are expatriates. Oil production is the primary source of revenue. There is a high degree of personal freedom and political stability for the region. The majority of Christians in the country come from expatriate workers, and it is illegal to try to evangelize the Muslim community. The internet and mobile phones are the best tools to help reach the people about Christ. There are Christian radio broadcasts in the area, as well as many people who study abroad in other countries who may hear about Christ. Pray that you can be a witness to Christ wherever you go and whoever you may meet. You never know how that message may travel.
