Grenada: Poverty


WGM missionaries in Grenada are ministering through the local church. According to the CIA, the poverty level in Grenada in 2000 stood at 32 percent and has likely risen since that time. Many people are unaware of the fact that this popular vacation spot is experiencing acute poverty and is in need of hearing the gospel.

WGM began working in Grenada in 2009 when veteran missionary couple Tim and Diane Bennett, who had spent 21 years in Papua New Guinea, moved to the island to help a new church plant. Grenada considers itself a Christian nation, but although many attend church, it doesn’t mean they have a personal relationship with Jesus. With the Lord’s help, WGM Grenada hopes to change that.

The national church in Grenada could use your teamwork. Commit to praying for church growth on this vacation destination over the next two weeks.
