Challenges for Prayer

Special ministries:

a) A new and more contemporary version of the Bible in Greenlandic was released in 2001 – pray that many will read it and be changed.

b) The JESUS film was translated into the Greenlandic language through a collaboration of YWAM, the Pentecostal Church and CCCI; it has received widespread distribution, impacting many.

c) Training for leaders and counsellors. With such widespread brokenness and responsiveness, more Greenlandic Christians must be equipped to minister effectively. Recently, INO established a leadership training school for local believers, for the equipping of the national Church.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
