Pray for Our World: Turks and Caicos Islands

Turks & Caicos Islands are an archipelago of 30 coral islands at the southeastern end of the Bahamas.  90% of the people are African Caribbean, but many include undocumented immigrants fleeing from Haiti.  The islands are a territory of the UK, however issues with drug trade significantly affect the islands’ administration.  The majority religion is Christian Protestant, although most of the undocumented Haitians are Catholic so the exact numbers are not known. As much as 25% of the population live below the poverty line, despite a growing economy in tourism and offshore finance.  Pray that the Christian church will unite and have opportunities to help the people advance for the betterment of the entire population of the islands.
