Detailed Map of BahrainFlag of Bahrain

The State of Bahrain, consists of a group of islands located in the Arabian Gulf. A causeway links the largest island (also known as Bahrain) to mainland Saudi Arabia. The islands are flat and hot, mainly sand covered limestone; with generally poor and infertile soil.

Islam is the official religion, and all Bahrainis are considered Muslim, no evangelism among them being permitted. However, Bahrain has provided a good base for Christian witness since the beginning of this century, with opportunities for a tactful witness existing through the multi-national Christian expatriate community. Also there is the well-known and highly regarded American Mission Hospital and The Christian Bookstore, which surprisingly has a high annual sale of christian Literature.
