The Alliance of Evangelical Churches and Missions of Niger (AMEEN) continues to develop as a united, visionary and cross-denominational organization.
This pioneer land still needs missionaries for all parts of the country. Loving ministry by Christian missionaries working through aid, development, health and education has won credibility for the gospel and increased interest and response from both Muslims and animists. Pray for more labourers. There is a growing contribution to missions by Nigeria and Brazil. Pray for sensitivity in helping small, young churches and their leaders to maturity.
For an additional 6 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
The Operation World book, CD-ROM, and DVD-ROM provide far more information and fuel for prayer for the people of Niger.
