Guinea

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

In order to turn the nation’s mineral wealth into a means of economic development, the military junta of Guinea is trying various methods. The orders have caused mounting

pressure on multinational miners. The companies are asked to present their proposals to the mines ministry, including a plan to construct refineries. The recent data shows that the Guinea bauxite shipments to China are at an all-time high. In a different story, Princess Anne was welcomed in Papua New Guinea for a royal tour marking the Platinum Jubilee of the Queen. Prime Minister James Marape received them. The princess and her husband will visit schools, cemeteries, museums, and galleries. Pray for the Guineans to know the saving power of God from their sins and evil ways. Pray that they will renounce the demonic occult practices and turn to the almighty God. Pray for God to open the eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison, and to release from the dungeon those who are shut in darkness (The Bible, Isaiah 42:7).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Guinea, relatively a peaceful country is jolted by the coup which ousted Guinea’s President Alpha Condé and the leader has said a new “union” government would be formed in weeks. Col Mamady Doumbouya told ministers who served in Mr. Condé’s government that there would be no witch-hunt against former officials. President Condé remains in detention, but his fate is unclear. The UN, African Union, and regional body Ecowas have condemned the coup and called for a return to civilian rule.
