“For God so loved [the people of the Gambia] that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him
should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
The Republic of the Gambia in West Africa is mostly surrounded by Senegal. Gambia has a short strip of
coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. It is the smallest country on mainland Africa. It has a population of
almost two million. Its capital is Banjul. Its largest city is Serekunda.
The Gambia’s official language is English. The national motto is: “Progress, peace, prosperity.” Today we
pray that every Gambian will know the peace that God alone provides: “The peace of God, which passes
all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:7).
