Prayer Items
  • Pray for mature leadership among the young, growing churches. This is a priority. Most leadership training is informal or must be pursued outside the territory.
  • Even though the dark legacy of slavery was abolished in 1848, it still overshadows the present. The Creole population is descendant from those slaves. Poverty, unemployment, alcoholism, dysfunctional families and high illegitimacy have marginalized this large underclass.
  • As the JESUS Film is shown, pray for solid decisions to trust the LORD for salvation.
