Challenges for Prayer

Many Maltese have emigrated to other lands, such as Australia, Britain, Italy and Canada, where some have come to the Lord. Although the Maltese diaspora still outnumbers the Maltese population, increasing numbers are returning to their homeland. Pray that those returning would include active, witnessing followers of Christ.
