PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Qatar Tourism has worked with a consortium of global industry experts to develop the ‘Qatar Host’ tourism training program. It is an engaging online learning platform that offers users the possibility to learn at their own pace on any device. The platform demonstrates how such frontline staff – who engage with visitors – may enhance the visitor experience and exceed expectations in every encounter. This will be useful to hotel concierge staff, mall security and restaurant waiters, with the relevant skills and knowledge to deliver Service Excellence to international and domestic visitors. The program will continue to expand, including more stakeholders to enhance service quality. Pray for the visitors to Qatar to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with Qataris and lead them to believe in Him (The Bible, John 11:45).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Qatar is listed in 29th position in the World Watch report 2021 by Open Doors for Christian persecution. Qatar is an absolute monarchy ruled by Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani the Emir. The State of Qatar, unlike many other Middle Eastern nations, has successfully avoided the unrest and violence of the Arab Spring. The peninsula nation bordering the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia was part of the Turkish-Ottoman Empire and then operated under British protection. Nearly 80% of the population is Muslim, and it is forbidden to criticize the ruling family or Islam or to share the Gospel. Many expatriates have been forced to leave the country as a result of speaking about Christ.
