“For God so loved [the people of Guinea-Bissau] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
The Republic of Guinea-Bissau is a country in West Africa. It is bordered by Senegal, Guinea, and the
Atlantic. Guinea-Bissau has a population of 1.7 million. Its capital and largest city is Bissau.
The nation’s official language is Portuguese. However, Upper Guinea Creole is spoken far more
commonly. The national motto is: “Unity, fight, progress.” Traditional African paganism and Islam are the
predominant religions. Today we pray that every Bissau-Guinean will “fight the good fight” of faith in
Jesus Christ (1 Tim. 6:12).
