Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Greenland

Bagasao Children’s Prayer Club: Greenland

From the children:

Every week we learn about a different culture or people group needing prayer. We study their situation and pray for them throughout the week.

Please join us in prayer for Greenland.

The country:

Greenland's National Flower

Greenland's National Flower

Greenland is the biggest island in the world. Greenland is about 840,000 sq miles and is covered mostly in ice. The population is only 56,156. Erik the Red was from Iceland and found Greenland. Even though he knew it was ice-covered, he called it Greenland so that his family and friends would come and live there.

Their faith:

Erik the Red’s son, Leif the Lucky, first became a Christian when he went to Norway. He then came back and told everyone in Greenland about Jesus. Many people then became Christians. In 1751 a missionary came to Greenland from Denmark hoping to find Christians there. Instead he found that nobody believed in Jesus anymore. Christians then came to Greenland from Norway and Denmark and many of the Greenlanders came back to faith.

Even though they are a Christian country, most Greenlanders only go to church on Christmas. People are trying to change this. Many Greenlanders now have the opportunity to watch Jesus films and others are going to Christian camps and schools. They are learning about truly living for Christ, which can be hard when those around you live for the world.

Please pray:

Hannah prays that the Greenlanders will continue to watch the Jesus films and go to the Christian camps and schools, and that they will stay in faith and teach about Jesus to others. Marissa prays that the Christian Greenlanders will tell the non-Christians about Jesus. Elisabeth prays that the Greenlanders will stay as Christians forever. Emily prays that the Greenlanders that aren’t Christians will learn about Jesus. Elijah wants them all to have enough Bibles.

Thank you,

Hannah, Marissa, Elisabeth, Emily, and Elijah Bagasao

I Timothy 2: 1, 3: I urge then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
