Speaking the Truth in Love

Equatorial Guinea

“For God so loved [the people of Equatorial Guinea] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea is in Central Africa. The country consists of a mainland (bordered by Cameroon and Gabon) and an insular region (consisting of the islands Bioko and Annobon). Equatorial Guinea has a population of almost two million. Its capital is Malabo. Its largest city is Bata.

The official languages in Equatorial Guinea are Spanish, French, and Portuguese. The national motto is: “Unity, peace, justice.” But the oppressive government makes a mockery of this slogan, subjecting its people to deplorable human rights violations. Today we pray that God will hear the cries of the Equatoguinean people and rescue them from the bondage of both tyranny and sin: “I have seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters; I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them” (Exod. 3:7-8).
