The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Libya is a north African
country located on the Mediterranean Sea. Over 90%
of the land area is covered by
the Sahara desert.
Once ruled by Italy, Libya became independent in
1951 as a monarchy. A 1969 coup led to a dictatorship
under the rule of Mu'ammar Qadaffi. The regime has become
infamous for its
financing of global terrorism.
Sunni Islam is the state
religion, but secularizing influences are strong. No form of
Christian witness to Libyan citizens is allowed, and the worship
groups and congregations of expatriates are strictly monitored.
The entire population is unreached, and there has never
witness to the Berber or southern oasis peoples.
