Number of Evangelicals
Home to over 11 million people and 1.6 million evangelicals, the small island nation of Haiti has a rich Spanish and French influence and church history.
After Spanish and French colonization in the early 17th century, Haiti went through years of exploitation for their resources of coffee and sugar, and received many African slaves to work in the production of those resources. Once Haiti became a republic in at the end of the 18th century, it's history of Catholicism slowly began to turn more and more protestant evangelical.
Today, Haiti scores a low ranking on the Legatum Prosperity Index and has access to extremely few numbers of unreached in country.
However, Haitian Evangelicals have an incredible opportunity to share the gospel with the millions of tourists that visit their neighbor country, The Dominican Republic, every year.
Pray to the Lord of the harvest that he would raise up laborers from Haiti and the other 59 countries on the Mobilization Index to take the gospel to the unreached harvest!
