British Virgin Islands

Title: British Virgin Islands

Tier: 1

Type: country

Tourism combined with offshore finance bring both large numbers of wealthy pleasure-seeking visitors and illegal immigrants, with the inevitable moral impact on island life. Some of these new arrivals seek only to find legitimate employment in a relatively stable country; others have more questionable motives. Pray for local Christians and for their witness to both tourists and immigrants.
