Samoan missionaries played a major role in evangelizing the Pacific in the last century. Today, most Samoans who serve outside of Samoa are pastoring the many Samoan migrant congregations abroad. An exception to this is the contingent of around 50 Samoan YWAMers serving around the world. Pray for them, and pray for their ongoing influence on their home churches.
