The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
The Republic of Maldives is made up of 1,200 coral islands, 202 of which
are inhabited. Located 600 km. southwest of Sri Lanka, Maldives is
grouped into 19 administrative groups. The entire country is less than
two meters above sea level and thus, susceptible to the effects of
global warming. Fishing and tourism are the significant industries.
Maldives has a long tradition of isolated independence. The
nation was an independent British protectorate until 1965.
It has been a non-party democratic republic since 1968.
Islam is the only
recognized religion, and the government uses all its power to enforce
allegiance to Islam and to forbid the importation of Christian materials.
The Maldivians are among the least evangelized people on earth, as there
are no Scriptures in their language and no Christian radio
programs. There have never been any resident missionaries.
