Wallis & Futuna Islands: Wallis & The Futuna Islands are a French territory made up of 3 relatively isolated volcanic island groups 300 kilometers west of Samoa. There are three people groups, the French, the Wallisians, and the Futunans. The population of 15,446 is 99% Christian in name but only 1% evangelical, with most being Roman Catholic. The Wallisian Bible was recently completed, but there is no Bible in Futunan, and the few Christian reading materials are in French only. Please pray for the whole Bible to be available to all of the people groups and languages of Wallis & Futuna, along with Biblical resources for discipleship, evangelism & leadership training. Pray that the Roman Catholic majority and other unbelievers will hear and believe the Gospel, repenting of their sins & salvation by works, and trusting in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. "But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life." (Titus 3:4-7).

Praying for Malaysia

Malaysian States - Terengganu (Marang District): The Marang District includes a long coastline on the South China Sea, Marang town, which is an important fishery hub and the jetty for taking boats to Pulau Kapas, a small beautiful island which is a marine park as well as a diving and snorkeling paradise. This district is mostly rural and predominantly (97.7%) Malay. Muslim men are taught that if they are faithful Muslims they might when they die go to a paradise where each one will have 70 beautiful virgins. However they are unable to have any assurance that they will go to this paradise because they are never sure if they are faithful enough, or if Allah will receive them even if they are faithful enough. Everything is "as Allah wills". There is no assurance and no peace for a Muslim, for they believe in a false god and a false paradise. Please pray that Muslims in Marang and throughout Malaysia will become discontented enough to over come their fear and seek out Christians, Bibles and other sources of truth. Pray that they will read or hear the Gospel, so that they will repent and believe. Pray that they will have the assurance that they will be with Jesus in Paradise. "One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!” But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!” And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.” (Luke 23:39-43).
