President Biden will host an important summit this week, seeking to shore up U.S. diplomacy and strategy among the Pacific islands, to counteract China’s “economic coercion” there. Were you aware of these crucial efforts? How should we pray?

From Reuters. President Joe Biden will host a second summit with Pacific island leaders this week, part of a U.S. charm offensive to block further Chinese inroads into a strategic region Washington has long considered its own backyard.

During the three-day meeting, the U.S. will announce diplomatic recognition for two Pacific islands, promise new money for infrastructure, including to improve Internet connectivity via undersea cables, and honor regional leaders at an NFL game. …

At last year’s summit with 14 Pacific island nations, Biden’s administration pledged to help islanders fend off China’s “economic coercion” and a joint declaration resolved to strengthen their partnership, saying they shared a vision for a region where “democracy will be able to flourish.”

The White House said this year’s effort would focus on priorities including climate change, economic growth, sustainable development, public health and countering illegal fishing.

The United States will also officially recognize the Cook Islands and another small nation, Niue, for the first time during the summit. …


Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare, who has deepened his country’s ties with China, will skip the summit. A senior Biden administration official said the U.S. was “disappointed” by Sogavare’s decision. …

“Vanuatu Prime Minister Sato Kilman will also not attend the summit, his office told Reuters. …

The U.S. is still negotiating to open an embassy in Vanuatu, but has not significantly increased its engagement with the nation, which counts China as its largest external creditor. China last month sent police experts to Vanuatu and signed a policing agreement. …

Fiji has welcomed the stronger U.S. regional presence as making the Pacific “more secure,” but Kiribati, one of the most remote Pacific island states, 2,500 miles (4,000 km) southwest of Hawaii, said this year it plans to upgrade a former World War Two airstrip with Chinese assistance. …

Lord Jesus Christ we lift up the natives of Hawaii and ask that you would bless them and send contractors from Habitat for Humanity to help them rebuild homes , apartments. I pray for those who have lost loved ones. Renew their faith and give them your Angels to support their grief!
You are their Father their Hope. Amen

These islands are extremely important to the security of the USA and I thank Father God with all my heart ❤️ that He’s bringing this to our attention so we can be praying for these people and the economic things done together can open the doors for evangelizing the people. Let’s pray for many island people to come to know Jesus!!

The continued influence of China in smaller and less significant countries is reminiscent of the influence of British Empire prior to World War I. I had my history students color code a map of the major powers’ empires (I. E. colonialism in the late 1800s) so they would “see” the actual power structure of the world pre-Great War (now known as World War I). Red was the designated color for Britain, the slogan of which was “the sun never sets on the British Empire.”

If the world map was colored now, the red would I dictate the Chinese empire being created by their “Belt and Road” initiative/policy is similar to the British access to “recruits” around the world at the onset of WWI. Germany had far less access to allies and their people to support his army.

The need to learn from history has never been greater than now!

FATHER, Send YOUR Angel Armies to Remove EVIL CCP from; Western Hemisphere-THE AMERICA’S & the Pacific Island’s.
FATHER, America cannot afford to continue to BORROW money from the Chinese and GIVE to Ukraine, and the world.
Obiden gave Bagram Airbase to CCP along with Billions of dollars worth of military weapons in Afghanistan withdrawal.
AND, also to IRAN (Biden is “Axis of Evil”)
