Faeroe Islands, Falkland Islands, Fiji

Each week, I pray for three nations from the book Operation World (2010 edition).  You can follow along with me through this blog; right now I am on the letter F.

It is made up of 18 islands between Iceland and Scotland, though only 2 islands are inhabited.  The main economy is fishing.  While they have freedom of religion, the Lutheran Church is identified as the national church and is supported by taxes; roughly 90% consider themselves as Christian.

More than 700 islands east of Argentina, but only 2 islands are inhabited year-round.  Main industry:  fishing (no unemployment).  There is freedom of religion; most consider themselves Christian, but a third are "non-religious."

Made up of two larger inhabited islands and another 100+ uninhabited islands.  Economy:  tourism and sugar.  Military coups have been a problem since 2006.  There is freedom of religion, but the political figures favor Christianity (Methodist).
