A fusion of cultures

The islands of Trinidad and Tobago are bursting with tropical vibrancy in both landscape and culture. A nation with a celebrated fusion of cultures, Trinidad and Tobago is also an economic success in a region where poverty and financial depression are all too common. However, ethnic tensions between the many communities on the islands have led to some becoming isolated or fractured and there is little cooperation between churches. Nevertheless, give thanks for the period of relative stability that has allowed people to prosper. Pray also for the leaders of the nation, that they would be fair with people from all backgrounds.
