Malta (EUROPE)

Population: 518,536

Languages: Maltese, English

Religions: Roman Catholic, Jehovah’s Witness, Mormon

People: Historically, the apostle Paul was shipwrecked on its shores. Today, Malta is a popular tourist destination; economy relies on trade with European countries. Many immigrants pour through the island as they travel from Africa to Europe, resulting in social tensions with the native population.

What to Pray About: For most Maltese, Christianity is simply a tradition. The non-religious segment of society is growing quickly, and nominalism is high. Gospel witness – Pastor Paul Mizzi with Trinity Evangelical Church.

Marshall Islands (OCEANIA)

Population: 42,050

Languages: Marshallese, English

Religions: UCCCMI, Assembly of God, JW’s, Bukot Non Jesus, Mormonism

People: During the Cold War, the USA tested 67 nuclear weapons at its Pacific Proving Grounds located in the Marshall Islands, including the largest atmospheric nuclear test ever conducted by the U.S. At one time, the Marshall Islands were considered “by far the most contaminated place in the world.” A large concentration of about 4,300 Marshall Islanders have relocated to Springdale, AR. The United States is solely responsible for international defense of the Marshall Islands.

What to Pray About: The rate of Type 2 diabetes one of the highest in the world. To this day, the Marshall Islands also suffers from many consequences of nuclear testing. Religion has enormous influence in every area of society, but there is a lack of solid biblical teaching and many are easily led astray by cults.

Countries to Pray For:


The Lord has bared His holy arm in the sight of all the nations,
that all the ends of the earth may see the salvation of our God.

Isaiah 52:10

Libya (AFRICA)
Population: 7,103,007
Languages: Arabic, Italian, English
Religions: Muslim, Coptic Orthodox
People: Libya holds the largest proven oil reserves in Africa which
have been captured by militia. Two rival Islamic governments: Libya
Dawn, which controls much of western part of the country, and Ansar
al-Sharia which controls the city of Benghazi. Violent attacks and
suicide bombings have brought further death and destruction; half a
million people displaced as a result.
What to Pray About: One of the most dangerous countries in the
world to be a Christian. The Government criminalizes the
proselytizing of Muslims; prevents citizens from identifying
themselves as members of any religious or political group. Christians
have faced threat of violence from radical Islamists, with a well-
publicized video released in 2015 depicting the mass beheading of
Christian Copts. Great need for Gospel witness.

Population: 1,835,380

Languages: Latvian, Russian, Lithuanian

People: Latvia has been multiethnic for centuries, though the demographics shifted dramatically in the 20th century due to the World Wars, emigration and removal of Baltic Germans, Holocaust, and occupation by the Soviet Union.

What to Pray About: One of the lowest-ranked healthcare systems in Europe. Evangelicals are legalistic, Arminian, or paedobaptist.
