The Gambia is a tiny, peaceful Muslim country. Former President Yahya Jammeh ruled for two decades with an iron fist. He was ousted at the end of 2016 by opposition candidate Adama Barrow in a mostly peaceful election. A Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established to investigate widespread torture and forced disappearances committed during the former regime’s rule. They will also investigate $11 million that disappeared from the state coffers when Jammeh fled. Gambians may openly practice freedom of religion.

Praise Report
Praise God that the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparations Commission (TRRC) has been faithfully exploring recent history and hearing the testimony of citizens (The Bible, Exodus 23:2).

Prayer Requests
Pray for the government to pursue justice and righteousness, exposing corruption at every level (The Bible, Proverbs 15:9).
Ask God to give the Church in Gambia a heart’s desire to reach the lost in their nation with the Good News of Jesus Christ (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 15:58).

Call to Salvation
Praise God that He is at work in The Gambia, revealing Himself as the Savior of the world. Pray that Gambians will receive salvation in Jesus this year (The Bible, Revelation 7:10).
