About Vanuatu

Vanuatu, formerly known as the New Hebrides, is  a group of islands southeast of the Solomon Islands. The economy is based around agriculture and tourism and both industries are often effected by inclement weather.  Vanuatu is the third poorest nation in the Pacific region. Over 94% of the population identify as Christian with thousands turning to Christ. The nation was officially rededicated to the Lord in 2006 with an outpouring of repentance, celebration, communion and prayer.
