Easter Island

Rapa Nui. As it is also called.

Thursdays have come to be and I am believing they are so by an act of the HOLY SPIRIT, my day to specifically pray for World Evangelism. Rapa Nui is my September place and I’ve been praying for them.

Rapa Nui was chosen ‘blindly’. That is I saw the tiny, tiny island on my world map and decided to see what I could learn of it.  Hours of research have confirmed that even though I felt more than a little silly connecting with an island so far away, I am praying in obedience.

One of the things I learned is there is no Bible available to date in the Rapa Nui language. True Spanish is their official language now, but it’s not their native language. So a work began a number of years ago to translate the New Testament into Rapa Nui. They are hoping to begin publication within three years. (Click HERE)

Well guess what? This year the powers that be in the school determined to recapture and teach their native language to grades 1 – 4 (Click HERE). I’m thinking this is a God thing! Every known language needs a Bible, don’t you think?

Matthew 4:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
4 But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.

Spend at least a few moments today thanking GOD that you (we) have HIS WORD so readily available to us.

Another thing I learned is there is much unrest on Easter Island (Rapa Nui). Another reason for prayer, maybe?  If you please, click HERE and learn more about this. For history and cultural information, click HERE. You may also can find many more sites online by keying in Easter Island, Chile.

And don’t be surprised if ABBA calls you to pray for the World, one Island at a time. 🙂
