OVERVIEW OF TUNISIA

TunisiaThe very promising revolution in 2011, which started off the revolutionary wave in other countries, turned out to be a disappointment for both liberals and Christians in Tunisia. While expatriate Christians experience a relative amount of freedom, at least within the church walls, Christian converts from a Muslim background (MBBs) face a variety of pressures. Violent reports in 2014 included a Christian being abducted for his faith, several cases of Christian women suffering some form of sexual harassment and many cases of believers being physically harmed and their shops and homes vandalized.

PRAYER POINTS

  • That new leaders in the country will permit more freedom for Christians
  • For a number of Christians who had to leave their homes and flee the country
  • That the sexual harassment of Christian women will stop and the women will seek and find trauma counseling
