Djibouti is a small country between Ethiopia and Somalia, and has possibly the hottest average temperatures on earth.  Lack of water, arable land and natural resources makes the country dependent on French aid and the American military base there.  Unemployment is 50-80% and is combined with an addictive qat consumption (an amphetamine-like plant that grows in the area).  Missions is difficult there due to the terrain and it is almost all Muslim.  The American military base is very strategic there and provides most of the employment.  Pray that the American and French aid to the country will meet both their physical and spiritual needs.

Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work. – Oswald Chambers
