Burkina Faso is Africa’s fourth largest gold producer. It has so much potential, but the country also has the world’s fourth lowest rating on the UN’s human development index. Burkina Faso continues to struggle economically as well as with corruption. Disease, malnutrition and low education levels are major issues. Freedom does exist in religion. However, as Burkinabe say, “The population is 50% Muslim, 20% Christian, and 100% animist.” Christianity continues to rise, increasing from 10,000 to nearly 3.4 million since 1960. Recent years has seen an increase in terror attacks by Islamist groups in Mali and Niger. In the last year, militants have taken control of increasing parts of the eastern region. Burkina Faso joined a five-nation armed force to fight terrorism in the region.

Praise Report
Praise God that the recent increase in terror attacks in this nation has driven many to seek comfort and direction in the Church, with many finding new faith (The Bible, Deuteronomy 20:4).

Prayer Requests
Bless the government with great wisdom to know how to combat the increasing control of Islamic militants in its border territories (The Bible, Joel 2:11).
Continue to pray for hostages, including missionary doctor, Ken Elliott, who was kidnapped over three years ago now, to be released (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 12:10).

Call to Salvation
Pray that a holy fear of God will sweep this nation, causing many to run to Jesus (The Bible, Isaiah 8:13).
