Challenges for Prayer

Evangelical Christians are increasing, mainly through Pentecostals. AoG and Church of God both have Bible colleges. Growth is too often followed by decline, since foreign financial windfalls and occasional healings seem to be the main attractions rather than biblical preaching and transformed lives.

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