Challenges for Prayer

Mature leadership for the young, growing churches is a priority. Most leadership training is informal or must be pursued outside the territory. As with the territory’s economic dependence on France, the churches are often dependent on outside help. Pray for recent moves toward developing the local church leadership as well as establishing both spiritual and financial autonomy.
