Challenges for Prayer

The once-strong Congregational Church (Kiribati Protestant) is in slow decline and losing members to other groups. The theological college in Tarawa is not evangelical. Pray for a return to the Bible. Nominalism and syncretism with traditional spiritist practices are all too common.

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