The massive devastation caused by the volcanic eruptions in the late 1990s nearly destroyed Montserrat as a habitable island. It will never completely recover. Pray for a new start, with Christ placed at the centre of island life rather than nominal Christianity, which largely prevailed in the past.
The Operation World book, CD-ROM, and DVD-ROM provide far more information and fuel for prayer for the people of Montserrat.
