Gulf-spoken Arab in United States

Gulf-spoken Arabs have migrated to the United States from Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Southern Iraq, Eastern Saudi Arabia and Northern Oman. Though Gulf Arabic has a variety of dialects, they are all close enough for mutual understanding and communication.

Ministry Obstacles

The Gulf-spoken Arabs who do not yet know English will be more difficult to reach. The majority are still Muslim and, like many Islamic people, they are resistant to the truth of the gospel. This is because of Islamic teachings and community pressures.

Outreach Ideas

Gulf-spoken Arabs in the United States are within reach of American Christian believers. Befriending and witnessing to them with Arabic Bibles and materials like the JESUS Film could potentially yield much fruit.

Scripture Focus

"Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life."  John 5:24

Scripture Prayer

Pray that today’s people group listens to God’s message and believes in the good news of their salvation.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the Gulf-spoken Arabs to encounter Christ through neighbors, work and business colleagues, and online resources in their heart language. Pray for a spiritual hunger that will overcome community pressures. Pray for the Lord to establish his Church among them and call them to take the good news to their homelands and families.
