Islam is the state religion, and Christians face restrictions when their activities are considered a threat to the ruling power. All religious organizations must register, and Christian meetings are monitored for political messages and nationals attending. Foreign Christians are allowed to worship in private homes or work compounds. Although apostasy is not a criminal offence, Christian converts from a Muslim background face legal restrictions, and can lose their family, house or job or even be killed. The deportation of foreign workers involved in Christian activities continues.
- Almost all Christians are expatriate. Pray that the few indigenous Christians will find ways to meet for fellowship.
- All public school curriculums include instruction in Islam. Pray that children will have the opportunity to hear the gospel.
- Ask God to draw people to himself through Christian satellite TV and internet sites.
