The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
The Philippines

[Flag] The Republic of the Philippines is a country on an archipelago of more than 7,000 islands, west of the Pacific Ocean and south of the Chinese mainland.

The islands were a Spanish colony until 1898, then were ruled by the United States until 1946. This was followed by martial law to combat Communism, a failed one-party republic, coups, guerilla wars, and widespread poverty. The presidential election in 1992 was the first
democratic change of government in 26 years.

The Philippines has religious freedom, and is Asia's only country with a Catholic majority. With the election of a Protestant president, the Roman Catholic church faces the,
possible end of its privileged position.
