Challenges for Prayer

The Carib Indians live on an isolated reservation on the northeast coast of Dominica. They are among the last indigenous peoples in the Caribbean to survive the arrival of colonialism and subsequent waves of immigrants. Most are nominally Christian, but only a small number actively follow Christ. Pray that these socially deprived people may find their true identity and fulfilment in Him.

     For an additional 2 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
