Challenges for Prayer

The less reached for prayer:

a) The Gagauz, who are Turkish but Orthodox Christians. Among them are some evangelicals, who have a vision to reach Muslims both in Moldova and in Eurasia.

b) The Muslim minorities. Increasing numbers of Turkic Muslims (>20,000) face antipathy from the Orthodox majority, but the Gagauz and Moldovans (Romanian Missionary Society) are sharing the gospel with them.

c) The Gypsy population is large and has very few evangelical Christians.

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