Comorian believers are gradually increasing in number, although the majority of believers are Réunionese, Malagasy and French. Each Comorian believer faces a difficult path fraught with likely opposition, and yet the body of Christ grows. Pray that leaders may be raised up for the increasing groups gathering for fellowship, and pray for the people and resources to train and disciple them. Response to the gospel is greater on Anjouan than on the other islands.
The quiet witness of Christian medical and veterinary workers in the Republic and on Mayotte has won credit and public honour as well as opportunities to share the Lord Jesus with the people. Pray for continued and increased opportunities for witness and that such may bear fruit.
