• Pray for the Gospel to go forth in power despite current legal restrictions.

Famed for its ancient trade in frankincense and myrrh, the Queen of Sheba, and the birthplace of algebra, today Yemen is struggling to reconstruct and regain its former glory.
The nation has been racked by three civil wars over tribal distinctions and competing ideology in the last forty years. Because of all the conflict, the government promotes and utilizes the nation’s strongest unifying force: Islam. Of Yemen’s 22.4 million people, 99.5% are Muslims with only 9,056 Christians.
