Also today pray for Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. Suriname is on the Northeast coast of South America, between Guyana and French Guiana, north of Brazil. It has 26 people groups with 20 languages. 14% of the population is Evangelical Christian. Trinidad and Tobago are two islands off the coast of Venezuela in South America. They have 15 people groups with 7 languages. 13% are unreached. 20% of the population is Evangelical Christian. The nation’s racial diversity could also be considered a racial divide. Inter-ethnic harmony is hindered by racially aligned politics. Pray that the government may be impartial and fair to all ethnic groups and that the culture of corruption and bribery would be exposed and eliminated. The Church is one of the only structures connected to every community, and therefore has enormous but unrealized potential to bridge the racial divide. Pray that churches would be instruments of reconciliation and demonstrate that all are one in Christ.
Specific requests for Suriname:
1. Pray for unity among the OCC national volunteer members and that they will be able to meet their personal ministry goals for OCC.
2. Pray for wisdom as the team develops their strategic plan.
