Pray for Our World: The Gambia

The Gambia, or also called Republic of The Gambia, is a narrow strip of riverine enclave that divides part of Senegal.  Life expectancy is 55 years, and half the population is under 15 years.  The Gambia was part of the West African slave trade, and the reason a population was kept by the Gambia river.  Today it is a majority Muslim country, and the country celebrates the Muslim holidays.  Homosexuality is illegal, and punishable by life in prison.

The unreached peoples are many and Christian evangelicals are few.  There is lack of tools, literature and training for the small churches that are there.  Pray for missionaries, the churches, and continuing Bible translations, Jesus film and Christian radio and tv, which offer hope and freedom to the people.
