Arabs are rising up

11/11/11 : Tens of Thousands of Christians
gathered to fast and pray for a revival in Egypt.
Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and other countries have all experienced unprecedented revolutions that shook the entire Arab world. One dictator after another has been removed.

Arabs are finally smelling freedom after decades of oppression by ruthless dictators. They are are crying out, "Freedom or death."

Once people taste freedom, they are not able to return to slavery. Will the Muslim Brotherhood take over? Will democracy work?

I don't know. But I know one thing for sure: We now have opportunities for the gospel that we have not had for decades.

(from Horizons International prayer letter, November 2011)
