Challenges for Prayer

Tonga has the world’s highest national percentage of Mormons, but possibly the majority of those claimed by Mormons would not consider themselves such. The country’s largest employers are Mormons; many financial perks are on offer for those considering the switch. Pray for the error of this sect to be exposed as such, and for many to find freedom in Christ.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
