Challenges for Prayer

Pray for more labourers to be called to Mayotte for long-term ministry, especially Francophone Africans. Those already here do a great job in a difficult field. Pray for encouragement and unity and for an increase in their number and their fruitfulness. A mission team is in place, working among the Shimaore, and one is being prepared to work among Shibushi speakers.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
