Of the 11 million people who live in Tunisia, almost 10 million are Tunisian Arabs. Only a few hundred Tunisian Arabs are followers of Jesus.
Many Tunisians rarely go to a mosque, and women have more rights than they do in other Arab countries. Despite these secular leanings, Islam still influences every aspect of Tunisian culture.
Sustainability — The Bigger Story
Workers have been called to live and minister among the Tunisian Arabs. Pray for wisdom as they seek to extend God’s kingdom to this secularized population.
Partnership — Move Beyond
In recent years, Christian media have generated a great deal of interest in Christianity among Tunisian Arabs. Pray that these efforts will result in their acceptance of Jesus.
New believers have shared testimonies of Jesus appearing to them in dreams and visions. Pray that the Spirit would continue to stir the hearts of this largely unreached group.
Entrepreneurs: Consider partnering with AGWM to reach the unreached Tunisian Arabs.
Readers, Writers, Speakers: The country has a large youth population that is highly educated. Almost two-thirds of Tunisian Arabs are under the age of 30. Consider the impact of mentoring these driven students.
Problem Solvers: New believers often experience significant persecution from their families and friends as they leave Islam. They risk losing their jobs and place in society, and they often face pressure from the authorities. Pray for the Spirit’s guidance as you connect with a community that seeks to address these issues and spread the gospel among the Tunisian Arabs.
