The Maldives is a small island nation – an Islamic nation where no mission work and no Christian literature has ever been allowed. It attracts tourists to its beautiful coastlines but behind the facade there is political unrest and many social problems. Pray that as in so many Muslim nations there might one day be an opening for the gospel, and that Jesus will be recognised as Saviour.
The Maldives is an Islamic republic which lies off the Indian sub-continent. It is made up of a chain of nearly 1,200 islands, most of them uninhabited.
None of the coral islands measures more than 1.8 metres (six feet) above sea level, making the country vulnerable to a rise in sea levels associated with global warming. (BBC factsheet)
