Vanuatu’s motto is “In God We Stand”. Pray that leaders of this complex little nation may be examples in doing so. Committed Christians played a major role in attaining independence, and they continue to help lead the country – not least is the President himself. Two of the main islands of Vanuatu are named Espiritu Santo and Pentecost – how appropriate for such a linguistically diverse nation! May the same Holy Spirit visit this nation powerfully.
