Communities where Christ is least known

Comoros

The Comorians live on a chain of islands in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and Mozambique. Each of the Comorian groups takes its name from the particular island on which the people live, but the official name of the islands is the Federal and Islamic Republic of the Comoros.
Major challenges on the Comoros Islands include poverty, disease and hunger. Educational levels are low, and less than half the population is literate. Although French and Arabic are the official languages, the Comorians speak their own Swahili dialect. Children are expected to help with the farming, fishing and animal care. Polygamy is an acceptable practice among the Comorians.
The Comorians are Muslim, but occultism and spirit possession are mixed with their Islamic practices. Traditionally, they have been resistant to any kind of religious change; however, they are gradually becoming more receptive to other ideas. Christian resources are limited, and as a result, the number of Comorian believers is very small.

Prayers

1

Pray for unity and reconciled relationships between the evangelical denominations, that they would work together to reach those living and dying without Christ in Madagascar and beyond.

4

Pray for SIM’s local co-workers at the Timothy Centre to continue the activities (theological education, community development, outreach and discipleship) after the departure of the missionary currently leading the centre.

5

Pray for a clear and courageous vision for SIM Madagascar, as mission strategies are developed.
