Each year focusses on a different country, and this year it’s the turn of Vanuatu, with the theme “Build on a Strong Foundation”. Vanuatu has beautiful beaches, coral reefs and wildlife, but it’s vulnerable to tropical storms, tsunamis and earthquakes. The service reflects the hopes, concerns and prayers of women in this ethnically and culturally diverse country. This same service recorded by the churches of Vanuatu is available on the World Day of Prayer website
World Day of Prayer is a global, inter-church movement. It starts in Samoa, then travels around the world via 170 participating countries before the day draws to a close in American Samoa some 39 hours later. The same order of service is used in translation all around the world.
