Challenges for Prayer

The Prison Fellowship of Guam has a ministry to prisoners that is also penetrating the indigenous population in a small but significant way. It has fostered a cooperative unity among evangelical churches (with 85 volunteers), which is sadly lacking elsewhere. Pray for resources to teach and train converts who remain in prison.

     For an additional 5 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
