Ministry Obstacles
Most Jordanian Arabs in Canada are Muslim, and they are considered to be an unreached people group. Though militant Muslims are rare among the Jordanians, Muslims are generally skeptical about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Without His death and resurrection, there can be no salvation. To a Muslim, salvation comes from obedience to the laws set out in the Koran.

Outreach Ideas
Businessmen who truly love the Lord and want to serve Him can offer seminars and conferences about business ethics. Muslims who sincerely want to run their businesses in a fair way that honors God might be interested in finding out more. Christian businessmen need to develop deep friendships with Jordanian Muslim businessmen.

Pray for the followers of Christ
As Arab populations go, Jordan has had a Christian population since before the advent of Islam, so Christianity is not new to Jordanians. Pray that the Christian Jordanians in Canada will love, honor, and obey their Heavenly Bridegroom in such a way that it will attract Muslims to Jesus.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray that persons and households of peace will be found among the Jordanians of Canada who will catalyze movements to Jesus among their own people. Pray these movements will spread to Jordan and other Arabic-speaking countries.
