Challenges for Prayer

Tuvalu was first evangelized by Cook Island missionaries and then the LMS. The Congregational Church (Tuvalu Christian Church) is effectively the established church, but decline has set in on the back of nominalism. Newer works such as the more dynamic AoG see significant progress. Pray for renewal and biblical faith for all who identify themselves as Christians.
