Located in the South Pacific Ocean, northeast of New Zealand, the fifteen small islands that make up the Cook Islands are populated by around 20,000 people. The Cook Islands is a predominantly Christian nation, with 96% of the population identifying as Christian. Tourism is the main stay of the economy, with the islands visited by several thousand tourists each year.
Problems to be solved
- The remoteness of the islands presents some issues in terms of accessing resources. Pray that the physical needs of the nation’s residents would be met, also, pray that the islands would be well-resourced with Christian literature and material.
Pray for evangelistic efforts to tourists and neighbouring islands.
Pray for Biblical Christianity to be upheld.
Signs of hope
- The Cook Islands are predominately Christian and evangelism and Christian living are welcomed and encouraged
