Twenty-five million people live in Angola—a country relatively untouched by visitors since the early 1970’s when civil war ravaged its people and infrastructure.
But Angola is recovering, slowly. A new generation is reaching out to the world outside their borders. A 20-something Angolan asked us on Facebook to pray for her nation:
“There is much opportunity to bring the gospel to my troubled country. Please don’t let turmoil turn God’s truth away. Please pray for the proclamation of His Word in the Umbundu language. And join me praying, ‘Please God, raise up women and men who love Your Word, and expand into places where people are hungry to hear. Glorify Your Son through all of it.’”
May God be glorified in our prayers for Angola.
We continue our journey across Africa tomorrow, pausing in Ghana to pray. See you there.
