The Gospels were translated into Tokelau in 2005. Pray that this Scripture in their heart language may impact their walk with God.
Migration to New Zealand for employment creates another means of bringing new life into the islands. Around 90% of Niueans, 75% of Tokelauans and over 67% of Cook Islanders now live in New Zealand. Pray for those who remain, that despair and decline would not take hold, but that there would instead be a renaissance of Island culture. Pray for the Island churches in Auckland and other New Zealand cities, for new life there and for those finding it to bring it back to their homelands.
