The trial over a 2009 massacre in Guinea resumed following a recent jailbreak that saw armed commandos free ex-dictator Moussa Dadis Camara and three others, leaving nine dead. Dadis Camara and three of the accused were re-captured on the same day.
The incident, which occurred nine days ago, raised concerns about the possible interruption of the trial, which opened in 2022 after more than a decade-long wait for victims. The massacre began in a stadium in the suburbs of the capital, Conakry, where tens of thousands of opposition supporters had gathered for a rally. According to the UN-mandated Commission of Inquiry, at least 156 people died, and hundreds were injured. The tragedy includes the rape of at least 109 women. Pray for the people of Guinea to have encounters with Jesus Christ. Pray for the leaders to repent for their sins and fear God (The Bible, Proverbs 8:13).
Praise God for a group of Christian Believers who started a discipleship group. The group is made up of about 20 young professionals in their 20s. They meet to share a meal, study the Bible, and have fun. This safe and informal environment means that people feel free to bring along friends who are not yet following Jesus. As they read and discuss the Bible passages, learning what they teach and how they apply to their lives, the young people become excited about reading the Bible in their own time. Pray that this group will grow and multiply into many groups (The Bible, Mark 4:8).
