A fishing boat carrying 60 migrants capsized off the coast of Guinea-Bissau. A coast guard commander said they had no information about who was on board, but that they had been able to ascertain about 60 people were onboard when it departed. Due to the financial situation in this country, there is no funding for fuel for the coast guard patrol boats, so no one was able to go to help. The boat’s wreckage was found, but no bodies have been recovered. Pray for creative and effective solutions to stem the flow of African migrants wanting to leave their nations for Europe (The Bible, Psalm 22:26).
