Challenges for Prayer

Christian resources are plentiful for this small population – two Bible translations (and one modern paraphrased NT being prepared), Christian Radio (Radio Lindin), Iktus Christian TV, online Bible in Faeroese, a Christian magazine and two bookstores. Pray that these may together have a strong impact on discipling the islands.
