Respected by the government

The Evangelical Church of Guinea-Bissau is viewed with a good deal of respect by the government after it assisted with humanitarian needs during the civil war and worked with Catholics and Muslims in the political reconciliation efforts. A Christian radio programme is broadcast every week on the country’s national radio, and a new Christian station has just received a broadcasting license. Already antennas have been erected and staff are being trained. Pray for the effectiveness of this station as it seeks to be the voice of Jesus to its local community.
