Islands of the Sea Overview


Secularism and a pursuit of leisure, pleasure and wealth characterize Australia . Church attendance declined steadily from 35% in 1966 to 12% in 1990. Less reached peoples are found both among the indigenous Aborigines, the many post-war migrants and the 6.5 million of non-British origin–both Australian-born and immigrants. Witness among the 630,000 students in the 36 universities and colleges are barely adequate.

Pray for hard hearts of the Australian people to turn from materialism and open up to Jesus Christ.

Islands of the Sea

In this group is the largest Muslim nation in the world, Indonesia. With over 200,000,000 people it is also the 4th largest country in the world with very little gospel influence. Pray for laborers to surrender to this country.

Cuba , the only communist dictatorship to survive in the west, is expecting a crisis as the regime of Fidel Castro is soon to fall. Pray for the doors to this country to swing wide open after over 40 years of darkness.

Spread out across the ocean are thousands of islands ranging from millions to just a handful of people with many languages and dialects, all in need of a Savior.
