where missionaries can go in and
readily proclaim the Word of God. In
the Southeast Asia region, the South
Pacific Island nations are ideal for
missionaries to go and preach and
island to island and conquer these areas to
put a halt to the tragic deaths of American
and foreign soldiers and the native peoples.
History tells of heroic native people, “Coast
watchers,” who assisted by reporting the
movements of the enemy.
Considering that each island nation
may consist of hundreds of smaller
populated islands, the need for many
missionaries is great. Though the
population sizes of these countries
may be relatively smaller than most
other locations across the globe, it
does not negate or minimize the need.
The islands of Oceania again are under
attack by the enemy of our souls, Satan.
We desperately need to go island to island

Vanuatu with an approximate total
population of 278,000 scattered
across 80 islands desperately needs

is the nation of Tonga with 104,000
people living on more than 50 islands.
Religion influences all of society.
Their Constitution closes all trade
and business on Sunday in honor of
The Lord’s Day. On the surface, this
may seem ideal, until one realizes that
the statistics show that churches with
false doctrine and a false gospel are
amongst the largest in the land.
Are some of the natives, such as the “Coast
Watchers,” watching to see what the enemy
is doing and wondering when the Forces of
God will come and show them the freedom
that is available in Christ? W
Also in the Oceanic region is the
Solomon Islands. A few years ago,
BIMI distributed 28,000 Bibles to the
students in the public schools. Sadly,
BIMI has no full-time missionary
working in this open door. A
foundation has been laid and the
opportunity is there to build on it.
These three nations illustrate the
connection between spiritual awareness
and island culture. This could be
repeated multiple times across the
other 16 countries of the South Pacific.
When General Douglas MacArthur
set out to win the war in the Pacific
back in the 1940s, he determined a
