WEEK OF JUNE 11 - 17, 2017

Iraq

Deeply divided between different Muslim groups and Kurdish people... horrific atrocities of ISIS and ongoing war against them have devastated the people, infrastructure, and productivity of Iraq… continued fighting, political instability, displaced people, and persecution of Christians are ongoing issues


Ireland

Long-standing division between Protestants and Catholics, and sex abuse scandals and cover-up by the Catholic Church have severely hindered the Church’s impact... Church’s influence is declining and Ireland is becoming more secular... evangelicals are growing, but are still only a small percentage of the population


Kiribati

Kiribati consists of three groups of islands in the Pacific Ocean whose very existence is endangered if sea levels rise... large distance between islands and few natural resources make improvements difficult... the Church is affected by nominalism and syncretism with traditional spiritist practices… great need for solid biblical, evangelical training
