The British forces based on these windswept but spectacular islands enjoy the support of the local populace, but are far from home. Pray for the work of chaplains ministering to them as well as the Oasis coffee shop, an outreach ministry on the military base itself. Pray for believers in the forces as they witness to their comrades.
