WHERE IS GUINEA-BISSAU AND WHO LIVES THERE?

  • Guinea-Bissau is a small country colonized by the Portuguese, bordering Senegal and Guinea Conakry.

  • It is an ECOWAS state having a very loving people who are always welcoming and open to visitors.

 

WHAT IS THE STATE OF GUINEA-BISSAU?
They fought the Portuguese for eleven years to gain independence. The few good things that were established by the Portuguese were destroyed in anger. They gained independence in 1974.

  • In 1998 there was a civil war (A Military rebellion) that lasted eleven months. Many more things were destroyed, taking the country backwards.

  • No President elect has finished his term in office. He is either removed by coup, killed or died a natural death.

  • The country being one of the poorest in the world has no single Aircraft. The President depends on neighbouring countries for a ride when there is any International meeting.

  • Some Governors have no car.

  • Even some Regional (State) government houses have no electricity just like the masses.

  • No tarred roads, nor portable water in the Regional Capitals.

 

THE PRESENT SPIRITUAL ATMOSPHERE

  • It is the only country in the sub-region yet to be Islamized.

  • Moslems claim to be up to 50%

  • The Animists (Traditional Religionists) are 38%

  • Christians of all category are about 12%

  • True believers of all denominations are about 3%

  • Pastors are only found mostly in cities and towns as the villagers cannot sustain a pastor.

  • Money is being pumped into G/Bissau from the Arab world to build Mosques, bore holes and schools. They have great entrance and acceptance because a hungry man cannot wait to wash hands when food arrives.

  • Even the tribes that had resisted Islam vehemently are now turning to it since 2010.

  • Women are now veiling in some towns and villages.

  • Koranic schools are now increasing.
