Great Expectations for Guinea
Guinea is a nation of 12.7 million people, 86% of whom are Muslim, with 29 unreached tribes. One ministry sent a team of two trained Liberian leaders to neighboring Guinea. They visited village after village, introducing themselves to the leader of the village after much prayer and stating their purpose—to start a church where there was no church. Wherever they went, they were received with openness, listened to with respect beyond their expectations, and even encouraged to teach and preach! Over and over again, the “impossible” happened. It seemed that all they had to do was show up in obedience and find a prepared people waiting. This ministry is awaiting a shipment of French New Testaments from WMP to establish new believers in these newly opened villages. WMP’s national coordinator in Guinea has requested two container shipments for his country to meet the challenge of reaching one million people in Guinea with the gospel.
“Many years ago, World Missionary Press printed the New Testament in the Bassari language at our request for the Bassari tribe in Senegal, West Africa. I just wanted you to know that the Bassari tribe in Senegal and Guinea are now 80 percent Christian and are building a Bible school in the bush for themselves. We just wanted to thank you!”
