Challenges for Prayer

Christian resources, including:

a) Literature. CLC operates a well-used bookstore that sells and lends books and tapes. Over 3,000 French Bibles are sold annually through the store. Pray that more local churches may see the value of Christian literature for spiritual growth and for evangelism.

b) Audio/Radio. GRN has recordings in Martinique Creole as well as French. Radio Evangile Martinique broadcasts in FM; their content is 70% locally produced and a result of collaboration between several evangelical denominations. Radio Saint-Louis is another Christian station also based in Martinique.
