This week we have been praying for Gabon. I have to admit, I had NO idea where that country even was and had to look it up on the map. By the way, it's near the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, and Cameron if that helps you out. It sounds like a pretty interesting country with a very strong French background. I also learned that because of the small land mass and foreign investments, Gabon is one of the most prosperous countries in Sub Saharan Africa. It seems like a pretty interesting and diverse country. The food seemed yummy too!
- While a vast majority claim to be Christian, Gabonese still fall back on their traditional religions in times of need. Pray that these influences may be broken down.
- There are 58 unevangelized peoples of the interior. Pray that every people group may soon have a growing, indigenous church and scripture in their own language.
On the menu for the night was Gabonese mustard chicken over rice. Not only did I not know where Gabon was, I wasn't even sure what "English" mustard was. Apparently, there's quite a few varieties of mustard, who knew, I thought French's was the only kind - kidding, sorda?! I'm not a huge fan of mustard so I was skeptical at first, but I must admit that I liked it alot more than I liked last weeks Ethiopian meal. If you like mustard, you would love this...
Next week is Germany, Oh I'm really looking forward to that!!!
