Challenges for Prayer

Pray for Bible translation and distribution. The whole Bible exists only in Chuuk and Pohnpein; the others have only the NT at best. This, combined with a non-literary culture, holds back the spiritual development of the largely Christian population and opens them to error and the predation of cults. Pray for the development of reading programmes and oral resources based on Scripture that would dynamically impact the population.
