Saudi Arabia is hell for Christian guest workers from Philippines

Saudi Arabia religious police.
Many foreign workers in Saudi Arabia who are Christians refer to Saudi Arabia as "hell," not because of its hot deserts but because of its anti-Christian spiritual climate. Church buildings are not allowed, and guest workers who meet in apartments are sometimes raided by the Mutaween, Saudi Arabia's religious police. Decades ago, it was possible to visit a home in Saudi Arabia where a beautiful choir of Filipino Christians was singing. But today, Filipinos, Indians, and other foreign Christians are sometimes beaten, imprisoned and expelled by those who have a devilish hatred of Jesus Christ.
