Challenges for Prayer

saipan1a) Pray for the Saipan Community Church and School that God will allow them to continue to “reach an island to bless the world.”  Prayer for those who call Saipan home and those guest workers who will someday go home that they all may be touched by God’s grace.

b) Bible translation. Pray for the completion of the Chamorro NT and for translation to commence in the two Carolinian languages. Little or no progress has been made recently.
