In most cases Gulf Arabs have no need to leave their countries to live somewhere else as they are well provided for and so there are not many of them living in America. After World War II, many of the students from Gulf Arab countries came to America for higher education.
The Gulf Arabs in America speak Arabic and English. Islam is their religion. Many like to live in California.
Saudi Americans live in California mostly and in Washington also. They tend to marry other Saudis so there are very few cases of Saudis marrying Americans. They like to eat Saudi food. Saudi male students tend to wear western clothes. Women dress in Islamic style.
Many Kuwaitis come to America as students and then go home. Emiratis from the United Arab Emirates come to America as students.
With the Yemenis, there are more of them living in America than there are of these other Gulf Arab peoples. Yemen is much poorer than the other Gulf Arab countries and has political trouble. Yemenis live in New York, also in Michigan where many work in trades, as well as living in California.
* Pray that as the Gulf Arabs read the Koran about Jesus, they will want to know more about Him, read the Bible and give their lives to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
