During the 22 years of former President Jammeh's rule, journalists were regularly abducted, tortured and killed. The new government vowed new freedoms but journalists feel they have much work to do to gain the trust of the nation. In December, journalists launched a self-regulatory body they hope will offer legitimacy. The new Media Council will promote higher professional standards, address any complaints about media in the country, and support press freedom. Praise God that a new season of greater transparency and freedom is being ushered into this nation. Continue to pray that this extends to religious freedom and ask God that the Church will grow in this coming year (The Bible, Psalm 34:13).
