Northern African and Middle Eastern Unengaged Peoples

Approximately 207,000 Tunisian Arabs live in Libya, outside of their home country. The Tunisians in Libya are mainly in the city of Tripoli, an economic hub. They are drawn there in search of work opportunities or life advancements because it has become increasingly difficult for educated professionals to find jobs in Tunisia. Tunisia and Libya are close linguistically, culturally, and geographically, which is why many Tunisians have relocated to Libya. Tunisian Arabs are primarily Muslim, with very few among them following Jesus or practicing other religions. Thankfully, God’s Word is available in their dialect of Arabic and the population of Jesus followers, though few in number, is growing. It is unknown how many, if any, Tunisian believers are in Libya. Pray that if there are believing Tunisian Arabs in Libya, the Lord will strengthen and sustain them in that dark place. Ask God to use the resources in their language to expose unbelievers to the truth and draw many to Himself. “I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness” (John 12:46 ESV).
