One of the world’s poorest countries, Guinea-Bissau relies on revenues from raising a cashew crop to feed most families, and its economy depends greatly on foreign aid. Outside of the agricultural sector, the government struggles to pay its workers. There are suspicions that the country aids the Latin American cocaine trade as the narcotic reaches Europe. Freedom of religion exists in Guinea-Bissau; however, an animistic Islam dominates the greater culture, particularly in the north and east. Christianity sees greater success in the south and coastal regions. This year the Economic Community of West African States (Ecowas) helped mediate President Vaz to name a government after months of political wrangling following the legislative elections.

Praise Report
Praise God for His protection over this nation with regard to keeping the growth of radical Islam at bay (The Bible, Isaiah 54:17).

Prayer Requests
The last two years have been marred by political strife and instability. Pray for peace to reign and ask God to preserve the outcomes of the November presidential elections (The Bible, Roman 8:31).
Praise God that the Church in this nation is growing at an annual rate of 6.2%. Pray for excellent discipleship programs that help new Believers to grow deep in God’s Word (The Bible, John 15:8).

Call to Salvation
Pray that many will experience true deliverance and freedom from the spiritual strongholds of animistic Islam and come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 10:3-4).
