Jizan is a port city located in the Southwest corner of Saudi Arabia. Surrounded by rich planes, forests and mountains, Jizan is one of the Kingdom's richest agricultural regions. Coffee, grains and many varieties of tropical fruits are locally grown.
Off the coast of Jizan, clusters of scattered islands bear the silent traces of the ancient church. The crumbling ruins of old churches are still visible on some of the islands.
The economic downturn in Saudi Arabia has greatly affected the region, and has set back many large scale development projects previously planned by the city.
- Pray a blessing for the Jizani people, that they would have their physical needs met and that they would have a spiritual hunger to know God through Jesus Christ.
- Pray that a new generation of Jesus followers will rise up out of the foundations of the ancient church to bring Him unique worship from this land.
