Missions vision has grown. The ministries of COMISAL (the national expression of COMIBAM) and of indigenous missions such as MIES, AMIGA, EDEHM, COMIFAD, ADN, TRES, ATN and AoG Missions are expressions of El Salvadors missions vision. These are in addition to international mission groups such as OM and YWAM/JUCUM. An estimated 165 missionaries are serving in other lands. Pray that mission involvement might increase and be fruitful.
Sections of society of special challenge:
a) The Amerindian population retain many of their cultural values and traits, even though they have largely lost their languages. Their treatment in the 20th Century has been horrific. Pray for effective ministries to begin and for culturally sensitive church planting among them.
b) The 115,000 university students. MUC(IFES) has 35 student groups, reaching most universities and colleges. CCCI also works in El Salvador. Training leaders is the greatest challenge.

The Operation World book, CD-ROM, and DVD-ROM provide far more information and fuel for prayer for the people of El Salvador.
